Getting your Bearings on the Main Level

Getting your Bearings on the Main Level

Penelope and I spent a morning last week taking measurements of the main floor so that we could finally draw up a floor plan!  (Yes, she helped.  She’s OBSESSED with the tap measure). I didn’t have much luck with any of the fancy pants floor planners, so hopefully you don’t mind my MS Paint version.  At least it’s (mostly) to scale
