I have had several ask to see a home tour. Here is a copy of the floorplan of our house. It is a 3 bdrm, 2bath, l859 sq. ft. house. This is almost half the size of our previous home, however I am finally settling in and am enjoying this house very much. Really easy to clean. lol
Let's start our tour at the front door. As you enter this is the view you have of the living/dining area and looking through to the familyroom and out the back to the patio and yard.
As you walk in and look around this is the full view of the livingroom.
Come on in through the opening and you see the familyroom/breakfast area.
Across from the seating area is the entertainment center and you also see the door to the patio and the backyard.
Standing in front of the entertainment center, this is the view of the breakfast area on the left and the kitchen is on the right. You also can see through to the dining/living area and the front door. With both areas so open to each other, we can accomodate quite a few people. They can just mingle between the two areas, and since we have great weather most of the year, they can also enjoy the patio and backyard. We've had as many as 60 people here at one time, and it worked really well. No one seemed to be falling over each other.
Standing next to the breakfast table, you can see part of the entertainment center and how the kitchen works into the floorplan.
The left side of the kitchen. Here you can see the opening to the living/dining area, and both doorways to the hall. It definitely helps that the hall opens to the living area as well as the kitchen, that way there are no bottle necks anywhere.
Let's start down the hallway leading off the living/dining area. The first door is a coat closet and then you come to the laundry room. Here you also see the door to the garage.
As you walk down the hall you come to the door to the guest room. This room is not decorated yet, so no pictures now. Turn right down the hall and you come to the guest bathroom. Very small, but functional.
The next room is my hubby's office. There is no way you will ever see a picture of that room. He definitely isn't the neatest person in the world and papers are everywhere. lol
At the end of the hall is the Master Bdrm and bath.
I think the secret to making a small house live big is having versatile furniture. The coffee table in the familyroom has 4 pull out stools that can provide extra seating. The breakfast table has 4 leaves and can extend to seat 12 comfortably and still not block the doorway. The dining table can seat 8 comfortably and 10 if I put two on each end. So even though this house is half the size of our last one, we can still entertain quite a few.

Thanks for stopping by and touring my home. I always love company and you are all welcome anytime.
