I measured all the rooms when we were there in February and I've already drawn them all out to scale so I can arrange the furniture. It sounds totally weird, probably, but I got the idea from my cousin. Normally I wouldn't worry about it since we've always had plenty of room. This new house, though, is quite a bit smaller than any house we've ever lived in. I needed to make sure all of my existing furniture would fit, so I could decide what to get rid of on this end before moving. Based on my drawings, everything will fit somewhere. We are blessed to have the office in the barn and will be using the attached garage (more than likely) as my husband's man-cave.
The only real concern is the guest room and master bedroom. Both rooms are very small and will hold only a bed, a dresser and a nightstand. The guest room doesn't have a closet, so we're also going to have to squeeze in an armoire of some sort. The master bedroom closet is pretty small, so we'll end up utilizing the armoire for one of us. We are never in our room, though, so I'm really not too concerned.
One thing that I'm really pleased about is the size of the kitchen. I was worried about buying a smaller home because normally the kitchen is also quite small. Our new kitchen is definitely not small. I actually have more cabinets in the new house than in the one we're in now. I also have more counter space, which is awesome. I can't stand to have everything bunched together and like to have plenty of room when I'm making bread or tortillas. I'm not sure if the previous owners are leaving it, but there's a small table with two chairs in the kitchen now which would be perfect for us. It's right next to the big window looking out over the pastures. I'm going to love drinking my coffee and doing my Bible study there in the mornings.
Enough for now, I guess. I'll post more pictures once we get moved in and have everything put away.
