Hi :) Thank you so much for this opportunity! I believe the most costly structural change I made was replacing the beam that separates the current dining room and living room and putting in a hidden beam - essentially combining both rooms to give you a large living/family/entry. I removed the wall between the kitchen and the current family room, with that removed (and a beam added) I moved all of your kitchen plumbing to the outside wall, beneath those windows that are currently in your kitchen.
Your plans did not include the exact placement of windows, I hope the plan I came up with will accomodate for them and not require ANY changes to the current windows. With the removing of the wall between the kitchen and current family room it dawned on me that you guys might really appreciate a door there to the garage, so I added that. The doorway between the kitchen and the back hall I moved to accomodate cabinets along that outside wall, I also moved the doorway between the kitchen and the current dining room to accommodate those cabinets as well and give better flow. Also I swapped the doors of your pantry to inside the kitchen for easier access. So I moved your dining room to what is now your current family room, it gives you more square footage for big family dinners and I think the room itself makes more sense as a dining room (with that wall removed to the kitchen). I wasn't sure from your description if you were going to be replacing all of your furniture but you did mention that you wanted something economical so I went ahead and just used what I could of what you already had in the design (love that trunk and your wing back chair :) I went ahead and moved that row of low white cabinets from your current family room into your new family/living room. I also feel that the shelves above those white cabinets could also be utilized.
I was going to use a microwave as a vent hood above the stove but I realized that your stairway will probably be butting in there and it looked a little strange to have the microwave under it... at least it did in the plan. I like using microwaves as vent hoods because economically it is killing two birds with one stone and opening up cabinet space. Thank you again for this opportunity, please let me know if there are any changes I can make etc. Or if you have any questions.
