Plan S 626

 Wise planning can result in an area serving a couple different purposes. This floor plan illustrates the theory of dual-use space. The activities area opening to the kitchen provides an area for the children to romp in full view of the housewife while she performs her kitchen duties. At meal time, when informality is preferred, the snack bar is perfect. When the whole family wishes to sit down together, the activities area becomes the dining room. The large exposed basement takes care of those big family reunions and neighborhood parties. The summer kitchen is an idea you might keep in mind for future basement development.
