but I think I'm almost done here. Mostly because I don't think I could convince Ryan to move the piano more than one more time. It only took us about 20 minutes to move it about 10 feet - he did feign injury after the first lift, but I think he was just testing the waters to see how determined I was.
Here is where I started with Option 1. The piano in the front of the room by the window.
Then I got an "Anonymous" suggestion to flip flop the couch and the chairs - good idea to solve the heavy weight of all that furniture on one side of the room. Thank you Anonymous! Here is option 2.
I have been wanting to try another option still, recommended by Nancy (thank you Nancy!), where the piano is on the inside wall. That little wall is odd anyway - it's cut short by the stairs and it doesn't look quite right to put furniture in front of the stair spindles. I like it from the front door, but it looks a bit blocked coming from the dining room.
Opinions and advice and welcome and appreciated! I WILL work this out. I must say that I have spent more time in that room this week staring at it than I have since we moved in!
