The Inside Story

Now that the drywall installation and texturing is complete, it’s a lot easier to see the actual rooms.  So it’s time to share the floor plan.

First floor plan

We were first attracted to this plan because most of the rooms were in the back of the house.  This works out perfectly to take advantage of the view.  The dining room is in the front of the house, but since the floor plan is very open you can still see the view from that room as well.

Here’s a pictorial tour of the house:

This is the front door and entry looking into the dining room.

Looking into the kitchen from the living room. The pipes in the middle of the floor are for the sink that will be in an island. The column to the left will also be clad in stone. The door leads to the mud/laundry room and then the garage.

On the other side of the entry is the office.  The alcove will have built-in shelving to house our A/V equipment.  The TV will be over the fireplace in the living room.

We've left the fourth "bedroom" unfinished to save some money now and finish it as a bedroom or gameroom later.

The wood floors are in and should be stained today and get their first clear coat tomorrow.  Then cabinet installation can start!  We’re waiting for the exterior contractor to finish another job so they can start on our house.  They’ll start with the stucco and then apply the stone.

The blog posts should come more often now as things are finally starting to pick up!
