Not sure how easy it will be to see these drawings. But last weekend while Pat worked on kitchen remodel I drew these up. Then we went over them and would measure, erase, and try again. I finally made the major appliances and the kitchen island out of post-its so I wouldn't have to keep erasing and redrawing as we ran into obstacles. Many of which were just miscommunication. So hopefully we're on the same page now. Like I assumed if putting dishwasher next to sink it'd be right next to it. For some reason he assumed a gap. Since he was installing the drain for it that meant we had to agree obviously. Luckily it worked out right next to the sink because I don't need any more gaps. I need all the big drawers I can get.

It would hang out quite a bit over the deck? This one is bigger than the one above I think. Definitely needs to have the glass shelf in there as well.
And then I am supposed to also look at sliding whoa did he say sliding? I am sure he meant FRENCH doors. And I'd prefer they have the same Prairie "Stiles" Style or is it Prairie Style "Stiles".

And while I was trying to navigate my families' (Uncle Howard and cousin David Garrison) webpage, http://www.theglassguruofcentralohio.com/ because we'll order these from them if we can? Not sure how the windows would get from OH to IL? But this was the perfect new front door!!!! Then we could put our current front door in the back? The back door is even more heinous.
OK there will need to be compromise.
Love it! Would prefer a darker wood, cinnamon like the future wood floor. Also need new garage doors and would like those to be wood as well. Designed a couple different ones on Home Depot the other day. You don't suppose he would go for accordion doors down in basement and then you could open all of them on a particularly fine day and be in and out at same time.
