  1. I could go on & on (and probably will !!) about this one !!! That large living room could be split into living/media rooms. Going back to look at old floor plans again, (warning !!) back soon !!!

    • Although I enjoy sitting down and watching my favorite DIY & HGTV shows I really don’t want to stare at a blank TV especially while I could be watching the surf. So how about an armoire to hide the TV when it is not in use.

    • Why not have a mirror TV? Mirror by day; TV by night. ;)

    • Wonderful idea !! Maybe I could hide it from the kids so it's not on all the time !!!

    • It's funny that you say that because the photos really do make the house look HUGE! It's a good sized house, but there's not a ton of room in the living room. Although … I wouldn't put it past the BC team to find the space for just about anything!

    • Nope! My mistake! I didn't realize how they had marked off the "living room" in the floor plan! Their "living room" incorporates the actual living room with the "keeping room" (with the unpainted wooden floors). When you look at it that way, there IS a lot of space!

  2. Oh !! In real Cabin tradition…… about some treatments on at least some of the windows ?? !!! Nothing says 'homey' like curtains/drapes !!!
