We met with Dave yesterday- he gave us the first run of the plans-
surprisingly on BIG sheets of paper. I thought the overall idea was
okay, but he missed the boat on a few things- we need 3br, not 4, one
front door, not 2, and 3 baths, not 2. No problem. Part of the deal is
that he will go back to the plans until we love them. We gave him about
12 changes to make to the plan. He should have the next run ready when
we get back from Alaska.

A few hours after we left Dave's I
get a call from Jason, who has had several epiphanies regarding the
plan and wants to review them with me. One was eliminating the slider
in the MBr (fine, but only if I get a french door instead- I definitely
want porch access from the MBr). The other was the placement of the
kitchen. To me, where Dave placed the kitchen is BACKWARDS. Don't ask
me to explain why, because I couldn't if I tried. It's backwards. It
just is. So we had asked him to flip it around, but then Jason realized
that by leaving it BACKWARDS we could open up a wall to the dining
room, where there otherwise would have been cabinets. It will be much
better that way. So alls well that ends well. I'm going to have to
figure out what it is that makes it seem backwards- hopefully changing
the placement of the peninsula will help with that. We shall see.
other thing on my short list is to get the surveyor out to plot the
wetlands flag. He won't call me back! So annoyed! This will have to
wait until I get back, I suppose. It's a lot easier and cheaper to
reuse him; the only other option would be to entirely redo the survey!
Oh well, vacation for now, house worries later. All in all, things
remain on track.
