Sorry for my late reply, we have been crazy busy packing, cleaning and getting ready to move into our new house!
So I have thought about moving the kitchen downstairs and to the back of the house, as I agree it would be better to add a deck onto the back of the house and maybe at some point a pool, this is the back of the house at the moment. We were thinking of getting rid of the water tank (as there is another one at the other end of the house) and taking the deck all along the side of the house to the back. We would then put in some bi-folding doors to open it onto the garden.
In terms of style, I am leaning towards a more rustic, Scandi feel, lots of wood quite basic and very homley. Every house has these high gloss white super modern kitchens, but I just dont think it will suit this house or our style at all. I quite like this Ikea kitchen.....
The floorplans are just from the RealEstate listing of the house we bought.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for clarifying @Angelina, I'm sure Adam appreciates it.

I am looking forward to reading all about your projects and plans, and know that you'll get plenty of helpful advice and inspiration from our community members.
All the best,
Oven size is a hard decision.
It's great to have a big oven for entertaining but then they not only take up more kitchen space but more importantly, take longer to heat up every time you use them. Remember that most barbecues these days double as an oven...
