Discussing floor plans with our builder

Our progress on coming up with a floor plan for our new home has not exactly been at a stand still, but it has been quite slow.  I've been reading a lot of idea books lately, and we've stood in front of our white board throwing out ideas now & then, but we haven't gotten much farther along than we were back in November before the holiday rush hit.  This week, I feel like we finally took a couple steps in the right direction thanks to a meeting with our builder.

Inside the Not So Big House

After giving up on our architect and trying to come up with a floor plan on my own, I've ramped up my reading lately.  Last night I finished going through Sarah Susanka's "Inside the Not So Big House," part of a series of books on the subject which I borrowed from a friend.  I love the whole series, and it often takes me an hour to get through a few pages because every photo sparks my imagination and sends my mind down a rabbit trail.
