|First Floor - Before|
My husband swears we've never bought a house where I didn't want to remove a wall. And this one is no different, in fact, I want to get rid of 3 this time. We're finishing up the plans now and are really excited at how open and livable the space will be. What's changing? There is a covered front porch that we are going to turn into a foyer. And by removing a large section of the wall between the kitchen and living room, we'll get a great circular flow - I'm thinking great party house!!

I know this is a big surprise, but we're taking the bathroom out of the kitchen and moving it upstairs!!! Wow, the new owners won't have to stumble down the steps to use the bathroom in the middle of the night! It means we will go from a 4 bedroom to a 3 bedroom house, but in the long run, this is a much better floor plan. We'll leave a powder room on the first floor and have a big family bath and laundry on the 2nd floor. And we're also removing an awkward knee wall that ran along the back of a couple of bedrooms. It will make the master bedroom a lot bigger and more useable.

So what do you think? Is this a house that will appeal to new owners?
