hobby area opens into a hall (pocket door) for access to other bdrms . bigger drop zone - reconfigured laundry & its great! Here's a nice floor plan for a normal residential block. What I immediately liked is the multipurpose room.
Like connection between kitchen & garage. Tweak further to have walk-through mudroom, laundry, side entry, narrow house-stores/pantry & main entry closet. Other side of kitchen open to dining. Other side of main entry would depend on width of lot.
