there's a first time for everything

i can do this, right? after months of blog stalking and image collecting i shall start my own blog. none of the blogs i have come across mention "cape cod" style homes. actually, i am not talking cape cod style. i am talking cape cod shape--an absolute difference. i have tried googling, and all that comes up are decor in a cape cod style, or cape cod real estate for actual cape cod. in the blog world i see "brick ranch" and "cottage" and "bungalow" but where are design ideas to help figure out my little rooms in their closed off floor plan, or my statement dormer windows, or my lack of space to create adorable vignettes in threes?? let's paint this picture, shall we...walking in the front door you are met with stairs (darn you, feng shui meaning of money leaving straight out the house!) that you ascend to the second floor, and bam, you either walk straight into the bathroom, left to the master, or right to the guest room. i have no hallways, people! back to the first floor....when we bought the house 3 years ago, you would open the front door and only be able to go to the left, into the living room. By opening up what was a bedroom, and creating a dining room, we are able to have a lovely circular flow in this space.

Yay for capes! Our floor plan sounds exactly the same, except when you enter our house, to the left is the living room and to the right is the dining room... You have to go through the dining room to get to the kitchen in the back of the house along with the 3rd bedroom and 2nd bathroom. ... That's a lot to read. I hope it makes sense. :-)
