Help with designing new dormer bathroom
IÃ¢ÂÂve been a longtime passive participant on this site, taking advantage of the collective wisdom when renovating our kitchen. Now that IÃ¢ÂÂm taking on renovating two bathrooms, and adding a new dormer for a third bathroom, IÃ¢ÂÂm hoping for specific advice. At the moment IÃ¢ÂÂm struggling with the new dormer. IÃ¢ÂÂm attaching the architectÃ¢ÂÂs latest design, which works fine, but IÃ¢ÂÂm wondering if thereÃ¢ÂÂs a more efficient way to lay out the space. There are some parameters to the project:
1) We live in an urban area (two family homes and triple deckers) and went through a six month approval process with the Zoning Board to get permission for the dormer. Per the variance, the walls and windows of the plan cannot be changed (though creating Ã¢ÂÂdummy window(s)Ã¢ÂÂ is fine by me since weÃ¢ÂÂre 15 feet away from our neighborÃ¢ÂÂs windows).
2) IÃ¢ÂÂd like to keep the WC and the shower/vanity area separate.
3) The washer/dryer (a small stackable Miele set we already own (I think 24Ã¢ÂÂor 30Ã¢ÂÂ square)) need to squeeze into the space.
4) Nearly everything else is negotiable, though the bookshelves on the left (facing the hallway) are pretty important.
ItÃ¢ÂÂs going to be three months of dusty, dirty, expensive construction purgatory, and IÃ¢ÂÂm trying to avoid any oversights or plain dumb decisions. Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to share their experience and expertise!
