Floor Plan help needed
My wife and I would some input for a custom home plan any and all comments are welcomed either negative or positive. We would like to hear your feedback before to go to an architect to have the plan drawn up officially.
We are building this on the family land each family of the 4 other families have about 12 acres plot with each of the 4 homes are facing 2 lakes, see photo.
The plan that is shown is made up of different parts of plans that we found either on-line or a home that we have walked through.
1)We are empty nesters both near 50 years old.
2)We want a ranch that will have handicap features that may be useful in the future. (1 story, 36 inch doors, 3 to 4 ft hallways etc.)
3)We both have large familyÃ¢ÂÂs we do have family gatherings that will approach 40-50 guest.
4)We both like the laundry room off the master walk-in closet. (It will be sound proofed.)
5)We like the front door to open up center of the great room.
6)We will have a walk-out unfinished basement that the next occupants can add additional bedrooms. We just need a master bedroom a guest bedroom for now.
7)We wanted the guest bedroom to be on the opposite side of the master bedroom
8)The master bathroom will have a shower and no tub. The guest bathroom will have a shower/tub.
Problems that I see:
1)We are hoping to keep the main floor between 2500-2800sq ft. right now itÃ¢ÂÂs 3000sq ft.
2)It seems the hallway is very long (50+ft) and seems to be wasted space.
Many, many thanks,
