Take Two: "Home Sweet...lot # 94!!"

After much humming and ha-ing, calculating square footage of each individual room, measuring and re-measuring rooms, we have decided to forgo lot 96, in favour of lot 94.

It's approximately an extra 250 square feet, between the two designs, for a total of just over 1500 sq. ft. The second set of plans at least means we can comfortably have room for the aforementioned "Oasis of luxury". An example of which is shown below, (these are photos we took at the showhouse, so it may not be exactly as shown in our house - but you get the general idea).

With the new plans the boy gets a slightly bigger room, and my kitchen/breakfast area will increase significantly to the point where I could possibly forego a formal "dining room" altogether and make the "living room/dining room" area strictly "living room/family room" space only.

Truth be told, I never entertain formally, heck if you're eating at my house, you are considered one of the family, in which case you can eat in the kitchen with the rest of us.

I can't help but giggle everytime i read "Oasis of Luxury", it sounds like a resort advirtisment.

I wish you the best of luck with the house. Decisions will be endless. We've been living in ours for 4 years, and have yet to make any decisions on design.

OOh, I'm getting excited on your behalf!

Amanda: LOL...believe me, once I start paying for all this, the "Oasis of luxury" will be the closest I get to a resort for a very, very, very long time! LOL

Jennyta: Thank you! Now the hardest part will be the wait whilst they get it all built! I foresee numerous new friendships in my future with "Bob the Builder" and his associated workmates.

Don't be Lou, I gotta work my ass off now like you wouldn't believe. This isn't gonna be a walk in the park believe me.

Unless of course you mean you are jealous of my impending friendship with "Bob the Builder" and crew...in which case I will let you in on a secret, they are easily bought with regular deliveries of pizza, donuts and other assorted bribes.

JustSue said...

Thank you Moonie! OMG I am so excited...and now the long, painfully slow wait. sigh.

Wow! Two walk-in closets in the master bedroom. That's nice!

JustSue said...

Yes, but in order to have my much sought after "Oasis" in the bathroom, I will give up the 2nd smaller walk-in closet for a bigger better bathroom.
