Help with Addition layout-please:)
We are trying to have a contractor build an a one story addition 1200-1450ish sq/ft. We live in a stockade style log home but the addition will be stick built, hardie board sided and metal roof the entire structure. We need to keep weight off the existing structure for my piece of mind. (i feel like the 2nd floor already has too much weight on it. We need in the house a total of:
2 large kids rooms (12 1/2X 13 1/2' or larger)
We have 1 girl 7yrs old and 1 boy 4yrs old)
Master Suite-with bath and closet
Kitchen (current kitchen will probably be a laundry room with pantry and wash sink (8'X9') after we remove the bump out of the living room.
Kitchen-single long island size approx 4 or 4'8"X10' or 12'
Dining area-room/nook or booth/bench area
Bathroom-common area bath accessible to both kids rooms or one kids room.
Mud Room-Would like mud area off driveway side (right side) i'm having trouble fitting this in.
Patio-screened patio for relax/entertaining and/or
Deck-screened area or deck off kitchen for bug free dinner/lunch
Pool if we do 1200sq/ft-budget prohibitive if we go 1450
I need help!:) I have done many rendidtions but none seem to have the perfect answer. We are unable to go past the dimensions of the existing home due to a driveway on the right and can only build on the back and back 3-4' on left due to sewer and utilities.
Look forward to your suggestions and help:)
