After meeting with the architect and telling him our needs and wants we got this new concept design back. Brian and I are thrilled. We made just a few small notes and changes which you’ll see but this is pretty much what our house will look like.
The front of the house. The house will be Cape Cod Gray, except for the two peaks that are circled, those will be a darker gray called Storm. The front bay window is for Pennie’s room, she will have a window seat with storage.
This is an overview of the entire first floor. Laundry, Kitchen and both our bedroom and Pennie’s. Pennie’s is currently labeled Den.
Close up of the bedroom areas, Pennie’s room is the Den, it has french doors and will have a window seat for her to look out. Her bathroom/main bathroom is directly across the hall.
Our bedroom is the master, it has vaulted ceilings, a walk in closet and a master bath. We did upgrade the bathroom so that it will have a nice big tub and a walk in shower with a built in bench.
The great room, kitchen dining room and living room all in one big area. We should have enough room for a china cabinet and the piano, otherwise the piano will go in the basement. We’ll have a gas fireplace and it’s difficult to see but there will be a little wall coming off the edge of the fireplace all the way down to hold misc electrical equipment for the entertainment center. The kitchen has a walk in pantry !
I’m also very excited about having main level laundry and a mud room. Lots of shelving space and bars to hang dry laundry.
Lastly this is the basement. We are having the builders frame up the basement but we’ll be finishing it ourselves. 2 more bedrooms (one will be a guestroom/office for Brian) lots of storage and a nice sized living room for entertaining. Oh and another bathroom!
