    Looks like a long-term design for access and comfort. Thanks for posting these.

    It is not very functional. It has two windows and a door way. It was built on to the front of the house many decades after the basic house was built. It changed the roof line and makes it look more like a 1950s Cape Cod than the 1941 house it really is. So many many things have been done to this house, it is kind of awful.

    I am confused by the plans, sorry. Is the plan where the 2 car garage opens directly into the bedroom being replaced by the 2 car garage feeding into the kitchen area somehow?

    I am confused a little after I had a second look. The design has one bedroom and one bathroom and kitchen in front with the LR on the right. Is the kitchen being moved over to the space where I thought that laundry was going to go? It will be a large kitchen?

    Looks great, IL! So nice to have an architect to bounce ideas off of! Did he/she give you multiple options, or did you know exactly what you wanted? I love the idea of the 4-season room and the dormer.

    Even with windows, a pantry that big is great.
    Love the dormer addition. I have dormers on my upstairs and like them. If I could I'd add a big dormer on the backside, the view is great towards the southwest.
    I like the laundry (pass thru to garage) and small bathroom. I don't think I'd like passing through a bedroom to get to garage. Guess I'm confused as well.
