I am drowning in floor plans.
Floor plans drawn on pads, piles of scrap paper, the backs of envelopes and serviettes.
We must have redrawn every possible configuration of this house multiple times and the evidence is all over the house.
It's a necessary process, to work out the best way to get the most out of our home's unusual layout (which is displayed under the tabs at the top of the page).
The big focus at the moment is on how to lay out the kitchen. We're considering opening the two walls that separate the existing kitchen from the pantry and the former post office room, which we'll use as a study. That would effectively give us a large open plan kitchen/study.
Having the kitchen and study open and joined is unusual but makes sense to us. We've always kept our main computer near the kitchen to access recipes or flit back and forward between bill-paying and checking on whatever's on the stove.
Lucinda will eventually be able to be there on the computer while I am nearby too, which seems practical.
I'm interested in hearing from people about their kitchen ideas. What are you happy you included in your kitchen? What would you do differently if you could? If money was no object?
And here are some piccies of life lately, just because. As you can see, we finally got Lucinda on a horse.
Ps. Still no interwebs. Soon, they say. Soon.
