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 and kitchen.
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.
The next door is the Guest Bedroom.
Turn right down the hall and you come to the guest bathroom. Very small, but functional.
At the end of the hall is the Master Bdrm and bath.
Across from the bed is an armoire. It holds our tv and has some drawers for storage also.
As you enter the bathroom, the tub and shower are on the right and the vanity is straight ahead.
I think the secret to making a small house live big is having a neutral color scheme and 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 taking the tour, I always love company.
