From my point of view, the best part of the new house is the kitchen!!!! It is probably three times bigger than my former kitchen and it is the centerpiece of the house. When I stand at the kitchen sink, I can see into nearly every room of the house. I love it!
It has been interesting to orient myself in the new kitchen. It is very exciting, but also frustrating at times. I feel like I am taking lots of extra steps and not always doing things at the right spot.....but I'm learning every day, and getting better and better.
Here's some pics of our new house:
My kitchen has a wrap-around breakfast bar with the sink in the center of it.
We've ordered bar stools, so my family can sit around me as I'm working in the kitchen. :-)
Here's a view of the breakfast bar from the dining area of the great room:
