Thank you for your thoughtful submission. We greatly appreciate your efforts and like your idea for an open bookcase as a divider between the kitchen and study, and the realignment of the doors from the front of the house to the back. On the downside, we don't like the location of the refrigerator and don't see an stovetop or oven at all. We also feel that the kitchen table gets in the way of traffic moving through the house to the back deck, and would move that to either the study or living room areas. Thank you again - we wish you continued success.
