D has spent much time analyzing our floor plan and doing the layout of the furniture to scale in Visio. This is what he has come up with (click to enlarge):
As a result of the layout, we'll be going back to the French doors from the courtyard to the bedroom on the main floor rather than the door from the bedroom to the great room. This allows better furniture placement in both rooms. Seeing the furniture layout makes it more real for me. I'm so excited for our trip down to see progress!
