Getting your Bearings on the Main Level

Penelope and I spent a morning last week taking measurements of the main floor so that we could finally draw up a floor plan!  (Yes, she helped.  She’s OBSESSED with the tap measure). I didn’t have much luck with any of the fancy pants floor planners, so hopefully you don’t mind my MS Paint version.  At least it’s (mostly) to scale.
Main Floor Floor Plan


– Do something to update those cabinets!
Add a bookshelf next to the windows
– Enlarge the pass-through to the living space
– Switch out the ancient hood for a microwave/venthood combo

    • Haha! Thanks Gretchen. Well one floor down, 2 to go. So I might have them all drawn up and posted in about 6 more months or so?
