Hi Liesl, |
Thanks for your note. We started with the F1715. We increased the footprint of the house by 3 feet on all sides (I think it was 3 but I'm not sure, you can ask Mike). The kitchen was changed so we could have a big island in the middle. We added a third bedroom upstairs above the master bedroom (basically using attic space). There's a small two piece bathroom upstairs as well. The stairs were changed to a U shape to give us more space in the living room. We put the furnace and mechanical downstairs to give us a bigger laundry/utility and added a pantry in front of the kitchen. The biggest change involved extending the upstairs loft all the way across to the front of the house so we now have a very large second floor but no cathedral ceilings in the living room (which we are very happy with). We made some cosmetic/cabinetry changes as well: built in bookshelves/fireplace in living room and a transom separating the living room and dining room. Lots of changes to windows and doors too.
Now that I read it, it sounds like a lot but the Robinson guys were great and very open to the changes we wanted. E-mail me if you want to see more recent pictures. Best of luck with your project. Victoria
