House Plans Final!


Finally, I can share the house plans with you. We've been making change after change and I believe we are happy with this layout!

main floor. Click image to enlarge.


We really have not made any changes to the second floor since we first picked the plans. The only changes could be moving things around int he bathrooms, or maybe switching up the closets. The 2nd floor layout below are the originals that were drawn up, so the measurements are not an exact fit to the first floor plans at this time. But you get the idea!

Not many changes since the orignal.
Basically, to pick the plan we ended up buying a bunch of house plan books on Amazon, and scouring the internets. We showed our builder what we liked from about a million different homes, and he whipped up some sketches.  We toyed with moving the stairs to the living room, having an office, and even removing the cathedral ceiling in the living room. But we are happy we didn't do any of those crazy things.

We had many sleepless nights discussing the layout. I mean, this is our forever home. It's only Adam, me, and Scouty now, but we do plan to have a few super cute kids someday.
There were several weeknights we were up at midnight measuring every room in our current house to get a feel for the rooms. We had a few panic-y thoughts that a room was too small, or that we wouldn't have enough room for a dining table.

We consulted with friends, family, and a few professionals to come up with the final draft you see above. And we love it.


So, what do you think? Our favorite part is the living room and kitchen/dining area. I can not wait to sip wine on our back covered porch listening to the creek.

Coming up next week, exterior!

  5. Hey, those plans are sweet! Really great!
    What are those two walls that come out from the back of the house (one from the master bedroom window, and one from the right corner of the dining room)? Sorry, I'm not an expert plan-reader, but I'm super curious!

    1. Hi Deanna, those are retaining walls since we will have a walkout basement. You will see them next week when I post the elevation views and they will make a little more sense. I know I get confused easily when looking at this stuff too!
