Floorplan

I know what you are saying!

Hurrah!

I have finally put together the floor plan for this place.

We never received a floor plan when this house was on the market, so I had to draw it up.

This is not exact, things are a bit off, for example the right hand outside wall is straight all the way until in comes in a bit for the 2nd bathroom, but I can’t see to get it right as I just measured the interior walls.

Anyways, this is just an indication.

I would love (NEED) your feedback on my ideas. I have created an animation for you Because I am bored designer!! I thought it was a good way to show what was moving, when it flashes to the next floor plan as opposed to looking at 2 separate images.

(Animation goes for 3 secs then loops)

Currently, we have a 2 bedroom home. The bedrooms are not big. There is also 2 bathrooms, which seems a lot for just 2 bedrooms. And then there is the long living area which is fantastically beautiful and long, we can re-instate a gorgeous fireplace and there is plenty of room for our desks/work area. I can see it as a great congregating family area with plenty of room to stretch out.

The new floor plan is an idea. What do you think? It involves putting up a wall and knocking through another to make it a 3 bedroom house. My only concern with this idea is that the “living/dining” area might be a little too cramped and NO I do not want to entertain the idea of an extension to the back of the house.

If the animation is just a bit too much for you, here are the 2 separate floor plans

(I just want to please. LOL)

Thoughts???

Please throw them at me.

Also, if you have other ideas, I would love to hear.

Now to get my CAD skills up to scratch.

  2. Nice way to add an extra bedroom! Might you want to make the opening between the kitchen and dining a bit bigger/ more open plan?

    I like that idea Nat, just concerned as to what holds the roof up!! Once I seek the guidance of a builder, we will see if it is possible.

    Not sure about it. Room dimensions would be helpful. Not in love with a kitchen off the bathroom. There seems to be wasted space where the linen closet is. Can you extend the bathroom and make it a three way entry perhaps.

  5. Laura says:

    Brenda, I’ll give you the walk through on Saturday. P.S I’ll do a new one with the dimensions.

    Hi, I just came across your blog, very interesting. :-)
    As an architecture student I’m always interested in projects like this!!

    I think it’s a great sketch of what you want to achieve.

    Without knowing the situation of the backyard and have you thought about reconfiguring the back entrance so it’s wider to open it up and allow light? I’m not too sure of the North point from your drawings but I’m assuming the back entrance faces north?
    And as someone else above said I like the idea of a more open kitchen.

    Exciting to see how it turns out. :-)
