Generally speaking, I’ve based this house on the houses of Marin in California and assorted Cornish fishing villages. I’ve also added a few ideas from friends’ houses, favorite books, and a couple other things to suit various whims of my own. Many of the things I imagine being included are overall feelings that don’t translate very well to drawings or words. What was really surprising was how coastal everything was - nearly every house I thought of during this project was near a cool, grey coast, which is quite unlike the climate of where I’ve spent most of my life. Something to consider in the future, I suppose.

The kitchen.
Fairly straightforward. My main concern here was to have the stove near a sink - accidents are a frequent occurrence with me. 4a = sink, 4b = oven/stove, 4c = fridge.

6. Bathroom.
Small downstairs bathroom equipped with coat hooks for coming in through the back door on a rainy day.

7. Office.
The first room I thought of. I’ve given myself a small office, largely designed for daydreaming and counter productivity - it’s centered around a nap-sized window seat, the bottom of which will be filled with blankets and books.

8. Living room.
A small living room, to be centered around the fireplace (which will be the kind that works with both gas and natural logs, depending on your mood).

9. Landing/hallway
A rather large and open landing. No particular plans for this space, though I admit I foresee it being lined with boxes.

10. Bathroom.
A rather grand bathroom with a claw foot bathtub. There will also be a shower (in the corner).

11. Walkthrough closet.

12. Bedroom.

13. Laundry
