Floor Plan Review
Good day all,
This is our 3rd attempt to create a houseplan we feel will work for our family of 4. We worked up a plan from scratch that we really loved, however; too many corners and crazy roofline meant it was too much money. We changed it to the point we didn't even recognize it any more. After spending way too much, I finally just started over from scratch. I'm now working with another plan, much simpler roofline and not as many corners.
My plan is to move my son's bedroom to the basement since he will be leaving for college soon anyway. He will have his own bathroom and a nice window for egress. We will also have a hobby room and a large rec room w/ pool table, etc... The main level of the house will have 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a nice laundry room close by. I wanted a mudroom w/ room for a freezer and my wife wants a hidden pantry. Our screened in porch will be 14' x 14' w/ a grilling area adjacent.
I hope I haven't lost anyone yet... I have made some changes to this version already. I have enlarged the garage by 2' in width. In the rear of the house, the extra 2' will be moved to the great room. The builder has suggested moving the open portion of the deck to the other side of the screened-in, sliding it enough for it to fit. This would allow us to remove the sliding door in the dining room and take some of the dining room space for a larger great room. When done, it would be approximately 16 x 19. We plan to move the fireplace to the wall adjacent to the bedroom so that we can have all windows in the rear vaulted area.
All that said, please give this a look-see and let me know your thoughts.
Thank you all very much.
