Exploring options on the Main Floor
I tried sending this to meek75 in a private message about a week ago, but I guess I did something wrong and it did not go through, so he suggested I post it here.
This is a reworking of the first floor plan. I did not get a chance to explore the impact this would have on the other floors, but in the end I added quite a bit of area to the plan. My goal was to expand the kitchen area, move the main stair closer to the entry and move the chapel to another part of the house. I certainly ended with something bigger, but not necessarily better. Taking another look after a week away, it appears that I may have lost some of the charm of the original.
Please forgive the lack of graphics!
I like your layout. As you mentioned in your message, having the dining room and kitchen closer together makes sense and the main stair being more centrally located in also a good thing. My placement of the stairs had more to do with fixing a mistake than logic Thanks for sharing.
