House Update with Floor Plans…10/30/12

It is so exciting! Last week we were featured in The Greenville News. No, I am not 14 months pregnant, even though I look like it in the picture. I didn’t know they were taking my picture that day! The house movers have started cutting up the third floor…they will be cutting each floor into three pieces.

We have been measuring the lot, trying to decide where the house will be positioned.

This is where the front porch will be, see the two stakes?

That is a well, conveniently located in front of the house. John thinks a fountain would be too pretentious…what do you think? Can you picture it? Nothing big and tacky, of course!


I am including preliminary floor plans of the house today, but we only have good plans of the first and second floors. The cellar and third floor plans are still in progress. I think we will use the servants room as an office. The third floor has two bedrooms, a bathroom, attic storage, and an extra room that I think we will use for the boys’ den. We have a total of 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths.
Here is the first floor plan:

Here is the second floor plan:
