Perfect. Build kitchen across the width of the house instead of along the length. Put half pocket doors across openings for dog containment. Light will come from both directions. Use stained glass for side facing neighbors. Put hallway to bedrooms etc. where staircase is in this picture. Butler's pantry on right where closet is. Living room will open out onto porch in foreground of picture. Like the can lights. Maybe add pendants. Open upper cabinets okay, but use all drawers on bottom. Darker floor stain. Great cabinet style.
