Well, sort of....Several weeks ago the Husband and I were talking about the house which led to a conversation about our dream house. But talking about the future "perfect" house let us talk about ways we could achieve some of those goals with the home that we already have. Though it's not perfect, the house we have now is ours and I don't think we'll be going anywhere any time soon. After a lot of thought I came up with a plan to rearrange half the rooms in the house (I even drew up plans because I'm that kind of dork!) and spent the next couple of weeks trying not to overwhelm my Sweet Husband with all the work that lay before us.
Check out this graphic I made to help demonstrate the plan:
We are moving the music room downstairs so that the Husband doesn't have to lug his bass up and down the stairs on an almost daily basis when he has a gig. The rarely used guest room is moving into our tiny shared office because something that is only used 2 or 3 times a year should not be taking up that much real estate. And finally, the office is moving upstairs into the old music room spot for more space and happily more sunlight (yay!)
The other brilliant part of this plan is that these rooms hadn't really ever been finished, meaning that we hadn't already spent a lot of time and money to make them functional as well as fashionable. As I have mentioned on many occasions here on the blog, I wanted to install shelving in the office and have somehow managed to do that for more than a year now. I had even taken the step of buying shelf brackets last month but I just couldn't seem to finish the job. Now I know that I was just waiting for the perfect plan to come along!
We'll be living in a bit of chaos for awhile but I'm really excited about how everything is working out.
