Designs for Living has done it again. Another Craftsman style home that looks great on the outside but misses the mark on it’s interior floor plan. This 2,300+ square foot home has an upstairs full of odd angles and a layout that would make furniture placement a nightmare (see master bedroom for example). I consider it a bad sign if I find myself trying to figure out a floor plan, which is exactly what I had to do. Just too crazy for my blood.
The main floor really isn’t that bad, but I think having the master bedroom downstairs with room #2 and 3 upstairs is a much smarter layout. The current setup wouldn’t work well for a young family of four since one of the kids would be downstairs on their own.
This is all quite a shame because I really like the exterior – the columns, the eave overhangs, and the two upstairs balconies. Good stuff. I’d just have to get an architect to gut the inside before moving on this one. My search for the perfect house continues…
