I keep trying to redesign my floorplan.
I've been basically in love with this one:
for years. I like the single wet wall (sink backs up to the bathroom water so only one wall with plumbing). Simple. Lots of south glazing for passive solar. I'd do a shed roof, higher to the south/front to allow for a loft up there for the hot water storage (passive solar on roof/southwall), maybe a greenhouse on part of the front.
I have decided I don't need the 2nd bedroom, but likely need a bigger kitchen. Eliminating the 2nd bedroom lets me spread the kitchn into the "dining/living" areas as needed. Anyway, someday I may or may not post a sketch.
BUT then today I ran into this floor plan which is another dream of mine:
A bedroom in the back of the library. A private bath and somewhere to cook. Everything I need. I think I could go ahead and sleep in the kitchen and use the bedroom for the rare books collection.
