QuoteI looked at both of your links. The problem with the dining area in the 2nd house is that the "inner" people will have to ask the "isle" people to move if the inners want to leave before the isles are finished eating. If you want this configuration, consider a farm house table with benches that have no backs so the inners can "step out and over" the bench without disturbing those who are still dining. You will need a minimum of 2 feet behind the bench,--but 3 is better-- to be able to set this up.In a house we built we had a 9x9 bump out breafast room. We put a round pedestal table in and this allowed us to have 6 chairs. Thus, the kids to come and go with minimal disturbance to those lingering over coffee.
