Lettered Cottage - Partial Floorplan Layout

Other than the two Guest Bedrooms, the Guest Bathroom, the Reading Room, the Mudroom and the Laundry Room- this is a partial layout of our place.
I did this drawing in my "Plan 3D" program before I bought furniture, so that I knew I'd buy the right sizes. I've made some MAJOR mistakes in the past, and ended up selling some brand new pieces that were just TOO BIG for the rooms they were intended to go in. :-(

Here's a closer look at the Living Room. Keep in mind, it's not the right kind of fireplace, it doesn't have accessories, and definately doesn't show the correct colors- but as far as the layout goes, this is it:

And lastly, here is the Dining Room & Kitchen layout. I would have LOVED to have a big kitchen, with an island, that's open to the Living Room.
That being said, I think the people that built the house should have put the kitchen where the Master Bedroom is, and vice versa. We live on a pretty popular street, and it would have been nice to have the Master Bedroom on the back of the house, away from the traffic noise out front.

I should mention, our piano is actually facing the other direction. It opens up into the Living Room (not the wall), I just noticed it's facing the wrong way and I'm too lazy to go back and change all three drawings! :-) I think the size is a little off too, there's actually plenty of room to walk between the piano and the over-sized chair. Oops!

Nice to find your blog. I've not met many people from Alabama on blogspot. I will certainly keep up with your transformation. You sound like myself; my mind never shuts off of design mode. Love it, couldn't live without it! Design is who I am!

Hi Layla! I found your blog...somehow and HAD to tell you that I love every inch of your renovations. I. am. hooked. and I'll be back to check on your progress. By the way, my dog's name is Maximus too! However, he's just a liiiittle bigger than your Maximus. :-) I've got pictures if you ever stop by.

Great job! I took C.A.D. (computer aided drafting) classes as part of my design degree and they are NO picnic. Its a tough thing to master but you look like you have got it down!

We recently moved from a house that took us 6 years to renovate. It was in the historic downtown district of the town we're in!! It was sooo fun and sooo rewarding . . .

. . . . then we popped out 4 kids, out grew it and had to move - boohoo!! I miss that place terribly!

I love the 3-D layout of your home, Layla.

Our granddaughter returned home, yesterday, after visiting several days. While she was here, I didn't have time to visit all "my blogs". Look what I have missed here at the Lettered Cottage!

I love your pet portraits...they are wonderful.

I'm taking inspiration from your kitchen photos in a previous post. I'm really trying to do something with our lake kitchen. Going for a more cottage feel, there.

Have a great week!
