Previous Questions and Answers
Q:Trying to determine if the above floor plan fits my needs. Only way I see to determine that
#1 the measurement from the interior bathroom wall to the window.
#2 the measurement from the window to the interior of the porch wall.
The answer to your questions – #1 is 5’-6” from Bathroom wall to side of window. #2 is 2’-11” from inside porch wall to side of window. The window is 2’-6” wide, but that size can be changed if you are within a few inches of your requirements.

Q:where is the kitchen???
A:This particular design was designed without a kitchen. The general idea
was a cabin for "roughing it." There are a few locations that would work to fit a small kitchen in there. 1) An L-shape version starting at the corner of the bath wall. 2) A really small set of cabinets along the bedroom wall, perhaps downsizing or eliminating the side window and turning that into an L-shaped kitchen. Hope that helps.
