1. This closet currently houses the A/C unit. As you can see, this closet cuts in to both the master bathroom and the second bathroom. We plan on moving the A/C into the attic (as small as it is) and completely getting rid of this closet to enlarge both bathrooms.
2. The hallway wall is also being completely removed. But it is being re-incarnated into a hallway closet. The wall will become a half wall, allowing access into the hall from both sides, and is being shifted two feet in to the living room. We hated losing that space, but this house is an an oldie, and barely has closet space so we figured it was well worth it.
4. Now, after reading #3, you may have been asking yourself, "Where the heck are they going to hang there clothes?" We are building a closet along this wall. The plan is to kick it back 2 feet and build a 9 foot long closet. It's no walk-in, but it is close to three times the closet space the master bedroom currently has! We are taking a small amount of space from the office. Small? Yes. Read #5 to get a better understanding of what I mean.
5. The office will not actually be losing 2 feet from the building of the master closet because we are pushing back the closet in here too! (I know, lots of closet moving!) The back wall of this closet will not sit flush with the closet doors of the back room. See that little nook in there? That's really the only space we will be losing.
Now, of course it is hard to visualize all of these changes. Well have no fear dear friends! We have an updated floor plan for you to gaze your eyes on. I know. It's as though Christmas came early.
Thoughts are welcome! Anyone have any suggestions? Anything we may have overlooked?
