House plan

THIS is the house plan we are currently in love with. (click on FLOORPLAN tab, and we will probably have the "cottage" facade, in the FACADE tab). I said, "currently". Please note, that our "favourite" plan has changed about 6 times - and is quite likely to change again!!!

I love all the space in this house. We'd like to put a wall (roughly half way) through LIVING 1, to make a Study at the front of the house. The rest of LIVING 1, will be a Home Theatre. Another thing that I LOVE, is the big bedrooms. I don't know about America - but here, the new houses, tend to have teeny tiny bedrooms. The only thing I have a few reservations about, is the kitchen, and lack of cupboard space. I have MEGA cupboards, here, and will certainly miss them. Although, there is plenty of storage in the passage way. *Did you see the double robes in the Main Suite*?!!! Woo Hoo!!

The back LIVING areas will look out to the rolling hills in the distance. Ahhh... I CAN'T WAIT!

Once we sell our place, we'll rent, while we build. We even considered renting a 2 bedroom unit - to save $$ - but I got the impression from the Agency, that wouldn't really go down to well. So we'll rent a small 3 bedroom house. At least, I hope we can - with 2 dogs... it may be a little tricky!!

*damn*! I missed the final of Amazing Race! I'm pretty sure, we're behind, here in Oz - (no wise cracks please!) Who won?!!! The Asian Father-daughter team, the hippies (CJ/AJ or something & Rachel) or the Grandfather-Grandson team?!! Arrrrggh!!! PLEASE TELL ME!!!

Love the floor plan especially the big open kitchen and family room. We have that set-up and it just allows for great party space and a gathering spot that's large enough. Can't wait to see the finished home.

Came back to see your floor plan, wow it's beautiful, and huge! # livingrooms!!!? What a dream! Can't wait to watch the progress.
We have a couple at our church who just built a house and a really neat thing they did was they had some friends and family write a blessing or prayer that they wrote on the two by fours that were used for the interior walls. Then they had a house dedication party. If we ever build a house again I plan on doing this.
