Roseland Project: Floor Plan

In case you didn’t see, I shared some photos of the Roseland house  a few days back as well as the original floor plan. Since the house basically needed to be gutted, we were able to redesign some things in the house.

And here is the design my Dad and I came up with…

The main changes in the house were:

  • Bumped out garage to allow for interior laundry room and walk-in pantry.
  • Redesigned a larger kitchen and added large windows above the sink to allow for tons of natural light.
  • Opened up main living space into one large great room and poured up the sunken front room’s floor.
  • Raised the ceilings in the living/dining area.  Originally 8’2″, raising them more than 1′ in this space made a huge difference.
  • Removed the aluminum porch and added a covered patio under roof.
  • Incorporated an office with sliding barn doors that will most likely remain open most of the time.
  • Widened the hallway and reconfigured the bedrooms so they were similar in size (previously the front bedroom was much larger than the middle).
  • Enlarged the master bedroom.
  • Swapped the location of the master bathroom and master closet to allow the addition of natural light into the bathroom.
  • We also took away and added some windows around the exterior.

I tried to worry mostly about functionality with the floor plan and really think this will give all of us the space that we need to live in harmony with one another.  And I’m not forgetting about my hubs… he has an entire back garage / barn that he will be converting into storage for his pest control company as well as a recording studio which he is extremely excited about.  I’m a fan of this also since it means he is giving me the reigns when it comes to the main house.  Some of my favorite words to hear are, “Whatever you decide will be great!” : )

    A walk-in pantry is a wonderful idea, and I love your focus on getting more natural light into your house! It really makes a difference in the overall feel of your home.
