Please review plan for farmhouse addition/ remodel

Hi all,

I am new here and in the planning stages of a major addition and remodel to a 60 year old farmhouse. It is on 9 acres in central Virginia.

The old house is 900 sq ft and we would like to add a 2 story addition. (1000 ft downstairs, 1000 ft eventually upstairs.) We are planning for an unfinished partial basement.

We are in our late 20s/ mid 30s and have two small girls under the age of three and no plans for more. We are hoping to do a cash build.

My concerns so far for this plan:

No powder room in the main living area, just the guest bath in the rear wing. I think this is fine but my husband disagrees.

Natural light. Will there be enough with the porches?

No mudroom. I am not sure if I need one, or how to work one in.

I would really appreciate any input!

Here is the old house, reworked- the future master bath is the old kitchen, but everything else is pretty much the same. Will have to wall off some closets and that is it. The current front door is at the bottom.
