Is there a way I can build this for my own residence in southern Virginia? I love the looks of it.
Wow! Talk about a luxury vacation 😍! I love the rustic look of it but the kitchen and two (😃2!) bathrooms, tell me there’s nothing rustic about staying there. This one truly makes it hard for you to leave. Very nice.
It’s a fabulous place to vacation or build one to live in! Yes, we each would want a few decor changes to personalize it but for the most part, it’s pretty darn nice! Well, I do take exception to one thing and for me, it’s like what were they thinking kind of thing. Who in their right mind would choose to put the dishwasher across from the sink instead of next to the sink? That’s just crazy. Fix that and it would be pretty close to perfect. It’s a minor issue, for sure, but day after day it would just get irritating. 😉
Not crazy, that’s just where the dishes are stored after they’re clean… Look on the shelves above the dishwasher…
Always trade offs, putting it next to the sink removes storage from that space, it’ll mean you’d have to move further to store the dishes after cleaning unless you move the shelves too but then you’re cluttering the sink area and reducing the counter top space you can use without worrying about dirtying the dishes, while splitting the storage, to make up for the space the dishwasher will take up, means you can be limiting what size items you can store, cabinet spaces can otherwise be linked for example for larger items, and may need to go to multiple locations to access everything… When multiple people are in the kitchen, having the dishwasher there allows someone else to be by the sink doing something else at the same time… If the dishwasher needs to be repaired it doesn’t get in the way of the sink or counter top area… Along with a couple of other examples, depending on how someone uses their kitchen that can also effect how they would prefer the layout…
Reason dishwasher near sink is 1) because of plumbing and water supply, 2) many rinse off dirty plates before loading, 3) dishes need food wiped off and garbage is most often under or near sink. Losing cupboard space is not an issue, when most often space beside fridge is location for full height pantry for food and portable appliances or dish and bowl storage. If extra counter space needed, then lift-up shelf attached to side of pantry becomes “flex” for prep.
Those are some possible reasons but Losing space depends on how much someone needs, for some it doesn’t take much loss to be an issue and location can factor to convenience and usability… Always trade offs, some just matter to some people more than others, and not everything will always be done for the same reasons … Plumbing, for example, is only one of many possible reasons as that too is a choice and there’s ways around many limitations if you really want a different layout but depends if it’s worth the trouble. So opinions will vary on that…
I would love to live in this barn/cottage. Its beautiful & has all the necessary appliances to make me happy. How beautiful & peaceful this cottage looks.
So glad you love it!
Oh, how lovely! I love all the wood, the full size appliances, TWO bathrooms (!) and comfy sitting area. I wish we could see the blueprints. I think the design is not quite as “tight” as it could be. I think if a couple things moved, it would have more useable space. For example, I am wondering why is there a second couch or daybed in the living room. Seems like an afterthought. I DO love the home overall, just a little bit of rearranging would make a big difference.
Well, a day bed can be more comfortable for taking naps, sleeping a guest, relaxing and reading a book and not disturb anyone on the couch watching the TV, when having a large group of people it provides extra seating space, and it makes use of a corner that would otherwise be empty and wasted space.
People also use daybeds to make a design statement that makes the space feel more welcoming, relaxed, and can be designed to provide some ambience to a room or help perpetuate a design theme…
