Sarah-Elizabeth has got some house plans over on her blog. She and her husband are renovating an old country house in Perugia and when I saw her plans, it got me all excited about our plans as some of her ideas are my ideas!
So here are some more photos of our future home. You will have to use your imagination a bit - well, a lot. The other day you saw the old school house rooms which, for the moment, we have no idea what they will be. Let me now show you around the rest of the house.
Here is the picture of the house again.
See that door on the left with the ladder on the ground in front of it? That may very well become the entrance, and will lead into the kitchen/living room. This door leads into the old house which still has dirt floors, and we are hoping to knock down the wall a bit, and make an arch which connects this old house to the 'new' house.
Let's go through that old door.
Opps! The old door is blocked by something, so let's walk around the side, and enter from the other door. This house has about 4 entry doors at the moment. We are going to walk through the door which is closer to the front of the photo.
The door behind that leads into an old chestnut room... Yes, there is a room for chestnut storage and what not, which really needs a post of it's own. I think I am confusing you all as it is! There are two rooms through the door, which are the rooms under the ones we are working on.
We are not sure what this first room will be. It also joins to the new house, so maybe we'll put a doorway in or something. Maybe we'll make it into a storage room for food...maybe laundry/bathroom....maybe a playroom...maybe....maybe...
Let's go through the door, to what we think may become our kitchen/living room.
Now let's enter the 'new' house. There is yet another door, next to the old door we just entered. This is the first room you come to when entering from this door. We don't know what this will be. Perhaps a laundry?
Let's walk into the next room. Perhaps this can become a playroom, computer room library type room? We have enough rooms that the baby and his future siblings can have a room of their own to play in.
If we make the room into the above idea, then it could connect quite well to the next room. Let's keep walking. There is a toilet in between these 2 rooms, which you can't see, but I see no reason why that cannot stay there.
Now this room will most probably become the living room/kitchen. See that far wall with the painting on it? If you knock through that, you have the last old room that we saw. Can you imagine a beautiful archway and an open plan kitchen/dining? We can!
Let's walk upstairs.
This room was a bedroom, and very well may become our bedroom. If you knock down the wall on the right - the wall you can't really see in this photo, then you connect with the old school house.
Here is the second room next to the bedroom. It's a good size bedroom, or a very, slightly too large bathroom. Maybe we want all the children bedrooms on the same floor?
The stairs at the moment only go up one floor, but we're going to have to extend them for the top floor. Above these 2 rooms you just saw, and above the 2 room at the old school house, is an entire floor. This top floor has no connecting walls, so it is the old and new house. Maybe bedrooms and bathrooms? We don't need an attic as we have more then enough rooms (inside and out.)
I must stop with the photos now as I have not only confused anyone who is still reading, but have confused myself!
