My husband and I are converting a typical Chicago-style 2-flat building (2 seperate units plus basement) into a single family home. Currently each unit has living room, dining room, kitchen, one bath and two bedrooms. We have an architect.
We will be knocking down walls, building stairs etc.
I am looking for some general ideas for the floor plan and layout. I am really into lofts, open floor plans and undefined rooms (don't want a formal dining room etc...). Need help with the first floor living space.
