Floor plans

I don't think we've ever spoken about the layout of this house. John DeForest has designed a home for us that is both delightful in its simplicity, and special in its details.

The main floor will be open in terms of the kitchen, living room and dining room. And the doors out to the deck will lift-fold to the sides, opening up the deck to the main space. On the north side will be a small den/TV room, and in the front will be a guest bedroom and bath.

The upper floor is really fun - it consists of our bedroom, closet and bath, but also a large terrace/deck that can be accessed from either our bedroom or the hallway. "Paul's study" is a separate space off the bedroom with a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier.

The lower level of the house has another bedroom that I decided to use as a sewing room/studio, and it has the garage (which Paul and I are thrilled about, having never had one).

And that's it! Our nest...
