With our contract signed and the wheels in forward motion to buy our home in Carlton Landing, I’m left with a massive pile of to-do lists and decisions to make. Happy decisions, but decisions nonetheless.
Things like what window coverings to choose (SO MANY WINDOWS), hardware to pick out (bronze? chrome?), furniture choices (sofa shopping again?!). It makes me happy that we aren’t building this thing from the ground up because all that decision making would send me over the edge.
So the biggest things right now include deciding what furniture to acquire and how best to maximize the space to allow for the most people to enjoy it.
Here’s the first floorplan I’ve laid out —
On the main floor (since there are essentially two front doors) we’re trying to figure out which side to use as the primary door. I’m envisioning a sofa, a pair of chairs, coffee table, TV cabinet (a vintage dresser maybe?). We could potentially do a sleeper sofa to allow for more people to sleep there, or if we don’t do that, store an air mattress in the enormous walk-in pantry.
Upstairs one bedroom will be the master with a queen sized bed. The other bedroom has room for either a queen or two twins. I think the two twins would be more flexible in the long run, although Simon’s leaning towards doing another queen. The loft will have a daybed.
Got any thoughts for me on the layout? I’d love to hear your opinion!
