I like the idea of this plan, but there are some major problems if you're actually going to live in it. The living room design is crazy for such a small room. Where would you put the furniture? Also, imagine having to go to the bathroom when you're in the kitchen. You'd have to walk the length of the house twice with where the bedroom door is. And a bathroom with a separate shower and tub but such a small kitchen? No. So the changes to the bottom plan are the ones I would make.
