Friday Fragments - Plan & Sketch

Half-Past Kissin' Time

It's Friday Fragments once again.  Here's hoping Mrs. 4444 is well on the road to recovery from her shoulder surgery.  I know all too well about that road, I traveled it about 6 years ago.  On to some fragments...........

#1. Many of you have asked to see the floor plan our new house.  So, I remembered that our house designer had emailed me the plans a long time ago and I scanned them into my computer and this is the best I could do.  I do think you can get "the jest" of it.  The garage and shop would not fit in the image, nor all of the front porch. And, you want to know what I'm sooooo excited about!  Do you see those two rooms coming in off the garage, called "storage?"  All my storage in our current house is upstairs and they are very steep stairs.  So, I can hardly wait to have storage so convenient. And, they will house my seasonal decorations and such as that. And, the room labeled, bedroom 4, will actually be my home office and will be laid out as such.  I'm excited about it as well.

#2. This is a sketch of the outside of our new house and again, I could not get all of each end of the house but you can tell that it will be a very Southern traditional look.  And, some of you have asked about the room above the garage.  Well, Hubby is calling that his "man cave."  Now, what it ends up being, who knows?  It may well be an extension of his shop since the stairs going to it will be in his shop area.  I never want to have anything to do with stairs again as long as I live. ~chuckle~  I just hope and pray it doesn't become a "storage area."  We are at a point in life that we DO NOT need anything stored.  NOTHING!!!! If we have no need for it, then it needs to go to the thrift store or to someone who can actually use it.

#3. The Princess stayed with me 3 days this past week and one day I took her up to my nail salon and let her get a mani-pedi.  They have the adorable child size pedicure chairs, complete with DVD players.  She loved putting her feet in the swirling water but couldn't hardly stand for the technician to fool with her feet.  It was so funny.  But, she is now all "prettied up" for her first day of school on Monday.

  3. What a fabulous house. How lucky you are to have all that storage on your main level. When we bought this house, we wanted a single story ... no more stairs. But unfortunately, all our storage is in the basement. Thankfully the majority of the stuff that's stored down there is stuff that we rarely need. DH keeps offering to have a half bath and a sewing studio built down there, but I pass ... I don't want to have to go up and down the stairs! ;-)

  6. Funny that you mentioned the storage area. The first thought I had when I saw the blueprint was, "I bet she loves that storage area's location!" And I agree--we don't need stairs or more storage area. Get rid of both! Your home is going to be gorgeous.

  7. Your floor plan looks very much like the house we had built in Orlando in 1996 except that your living room was our Great Room and the garage/storage areas were different. I love what you have planned! It was a great design for us and I know you will love love love it for yourselves.

    The mani-pedi pics are so cute. You are a very fun grandmother!!

  8. Kendall and I will be going for pedicures soon; I figured she could use one after a barefoot summer at camp, and she has to have company, so of course I'll get one, too!(my first)

    Your home is gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing the plans.

    I had therapy today and got glowing reports on my progress!

    Thanks for linking up. Have a great weekend!
