The gist of this post is to get some ideas to change our house built in 2016 from an open floor plan, to one with more privacy. For me to really enjoy the house, it’s going to need a new/bigger kitchen and maybe another family area. There really is no front entry either. Sound travels from the front to the back very easily. The sound alone is very disturbing to me. The bedrooms are clustered together, which is something I wanted because I have thing about if there’s a house fire i want to be able to get everyone out. Weird I know Also the walls must be made of paper as you can hear normal conversations through them. Also not helping with the sound are the concrete marbled floors- which I have a love/hate relationship with.
