based on the look of the front bedroom window i would expect that the hallway and master bedroom are a little different to your original sketch but can you see any other obvious differences and can you describe your climate, who will live in the house and what's in the laundry and the backyard
happy to make a more accurate plan for you but need approximate dimensions of the rooms and when you say "facing East" do you mean that the front door looks towards the east?

Narrow house floor plan help needed
If you are considering flipping the house in two or three years you need to be really cautious about how much you spend, as you risk not making a return on your expenditure in the short term. All new work should be simple, cost-effective and delivered for maximum impact.
One of the best ways to approach this is to work with the existing character of the house rather than attempt to modernise and try and make it into something that its not. I would be keeping the existing floorplan and arrangement of rooms, and improving the connection between the home and the rear garden.
A square rear deck, with pergola, and a deciduous, fast growing creeper, such as wisteria, that opens out from the dining area through a glazed sliding door would be an excellent start. Cheaper than a covered area, and will let more light into the rear of the house in winter.

For me the important things to do, open up the wall between kitchen living room with a new kitchen and replace the back door and window with a large slider. Add a deck across the front of the living window to the entrance and possibly another sliding or french doors off the living onto the deck. cheers
happy to try if you can provide the correct dimensions
with accurate dimensions it's possible to add furniture and removing any walls would only make that more difficult ..as already suggested the most cost effective improvement would be to add a generous deck with sliding glass doors off the dining room and maybe a kitchen servery window and lengthen the carport to wrap a flat roof around to the front door to create a covered entry porch...there's not enough space to do much extra inside so restrict the kitchen to a basic L shape with fridge against the wall (better for tenants?) and add freestanding tall cabinets for pantry, linen, dining and living storage...eg IKEA Billy bookshelves with solid and glass doors can be attached to the walls to create a built in feeling and can be moved with you later ... focus on good quality finishes and landscaping (new driveway?) to make the best of the property without overcapitalising
