Retraction


Look at what I did with "Arrange-a-Room" from BHG! You can set the dimensions of everything, the room, the doors, windows, and yes, even the furniture. This is the one for you Beth. I take back everything I said about on-line floor plan generators below. Apparently, you can even save your floor plan and come back and play with it later. If the room is "L" shaped, I'd just treat them as separate rooms--or put "fake" windows or a bookcase or something along the "walls" of a big square to section it off. I don't know, but I bet you could think of something!

Thanks, Alana, I've used that tool before but couldn't find it the other day when I was making my floorplans. This one is more user-friendly than the one I ended up using.

I love floorplans too! Your instructions for the longhand version were perfect. I grew up thinking of tiny graph-paper furniture as the most natural thing in the world. My mother's undergrad degree was interior design, though she's never worked in the field professionally, and my father was military, so in her 30ish years of married life she's set up maybe 15 homes. She could run color-coordinated circles around that "Use What You Have" woman.

Good for your Mom!
15 homes sound like a lot in 30 years--but I grew up in a similiar situation (though not military--just poor and always looking for a better job or cheaper rent)Our family has been in the same house for ten years now and it's driving me batty. It's just no fun when you can't play with your furniture arrangements!

Thanks, Alana -- although I'm pretty happy with what I did this evening (check out my "Ahhhhhh" post) I'll probably spend some time playing with the floorplan tool anyway -- I remember that it was great fun last year! Thanks for finding it, and jogging my memory!
