Let's talk about the new house!
We've worked hard to come up with a design which, while looking mostly like a local house from the front, would also give us the amenities which Americans are generally used to having - like finished floors, bath tubs, a functional kitchen, glass windows, and CLOSETS! Plus, we've included some features which will definitely feel like luxuries to us - high ceilings, lots of kitchen cabinets, a fireplace, and rooms looking out over gorgeous mountain views.
The plans call for the house to have four bedrooms and two full bathrooms (both with tubs), a nice-sized living room, a large kitchen/great room with a dining area, sitting area, and fireplace, a big pantry and nice laundry room/mudroom, plus a bit of basement storage. It's all packed in there! We're excited about these plans, and about seeing them grow from ideas to reality!
Oldest daughter Kirstin is arriving today for her annual visit, and we're expecting her to come up with a few tweaks, as she looks over the plans with fresh eyes. I'll keep you informed!
