More Space, More Light

After reviewing the initial draft of the construction drawing set and going through another iteration of furniture test fits for the Oakley Home 2.0 project, I came to the realization this past week that the plans were coming up just a little short space-wise. As a result, I made the decision to extend the plan another 2'-8" in length to provide some more square footage to the living, dining, kitchen and master suite above. I also added a double casement window near the dining area, to provide additional light and views for the home's primary gathering space. While 32" might not seem like all that much, I think it will make a huge difference in the feel and function of these spaces when they get built and will be well worth the additional upfront cost. Below is an updated perspective and a furniture plan showing the new and improved layout.
