So after a few sessions with the architects and builders, we have managed to hammer out some initial layouts of the rooms in the house. We also have an idea of how we'd like the house to sit on the lot.
I personally love these layouts, and it's going to be hard to talk me into any significant changes (I'm looking at you, Blake). The garage faces Nebraska, and the front of the house is on 16th. The great room features an open layout that includes the kitchen, dining area, and living room. All the bedrooms are upstairs, as is the laundry room (all houses should be like this!). We have tons of backyard space, and a nice porch on the front.
