QuoteJared:You asked for comments on your floorplan so here are mine.1. Good flow between the upstairs and kitchen area. With 4 children, the traffic up and down the stair case from kids wanting something from the frig is going to be heavy as the children get older. Boys especially will be in the kitchen several times a day. Your traffic flow allows that constant in and out without having to cross thru the main living area. In my mind, this is ideal.2. The size of the livingroom is only about 10 feet across--that seems a little narrow. Since you have a large family (4 kids and 2 adults) it seems that this area needs to be a little larger so that the whole family can congregate easily.3. The 1st floor master bedroom seems a little small; it's only a little over 9 feet wide if I read your plans correctly. In order to put a queen/king bed and dressers your plan needs to be a minimum of about 11-ish by 11-ish. With the bed in the position shown on your plans, the person sleeping next to the wall has a difficult time exiting the bed. Also, the walk in closet could use an extra foot in width. I don't think you can hang clothes on both sides of the closet with the width you have shown. 4. Why is the hot water heater on the first floor? If you are going to have a basement, is there a reason that it can't be there? Overall, I think you've got a good first draft. Keep us posted on the revisions.
