Here is the floor plan and some of the structural specs we decided upon:
Here are some of the upgrades that we chose:
5 Bedrooms instead of Loft- We upgraded the option to remove the loft and add a 5th bedroom. The dimensions of the 5th bedroom are quite small, but we are only going to use this room for guests. It should be fine for what we are going to do with it.
Study instead of Living Room- We decided to upgrade from the Formal Living Room to the Study option. I really needed an office and we would not have used the Formal Living Room, it would have been wasted space.
Finished Basement- We decided this was a must have option. Due to our family size, we wanted enough room for the kids to play indoors and enough space for us to entertain.
Finished Full Bathroom in Basement- This was another upgrade that we selected because most of our family is out of town, this would enable us to have multiple bathrooms for our overnight guests and for our growing family.
Gourmet Island in the Kitchen - This is one of my absolute favorites! It makes the kitchen look so grand. Can't wait to cook in it.
Up Stairs Laundry -The main thing that I can say about this is THANK YOU LORD! I have to wash for 5 soon to be 6 people and it is a drag washing clothes, and having to carry them upstairs. I am looking forward to washing clothes and folding them and taking them directly to the room they belong in.
Deluxe Master Bathroom- We decided that we would go with the deluxe master bathroom. This means that we will have a separate tub and shower. The tub and shower will be divided my clear glass all around and it will be covered in ceramic tile with mosaic glass accents.
