New to the community.. I have house issues..

I'm looking at a smallish 1-story with a finished room/bath in the basement/crawlspace area. The layout of this house leaves much to be desired, but it sits on an acre of land with creek.. so I'm willing to find a way to make this work.

Current layout:


Proposed layout:


The worst part of the house is the kitchen/breakfast/bathroom area in the middle. Short of gutting the entire upstairs and starting over (which isn't in the budget), this at least improves what's there. I'm not entirely sold on the layout, but am becoming more comfortable with it.

What are your impressions?

How many square feet is the house?
around 1100
I think it looks nice either way, but it obviously comes down to personal preference and what you think is important in order to be comfortable. When I was looking to buy my first house, I passed up an 1100 in an ideal location for a 1532 sq ft house in a less convenient location because I thought it would be too difficult to make the smaller one work. Now I'm giving it all up to live in a 175 sq ft home and couldn't be happier.

If you truly like the land and the creek, I'd encourage you to read more about the tiny house movement for inspiration.

Good luck!
