Need help designing an apartment attached to a barn
September 10, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are down sizing with retirement. Building a 24 x 40 addition off a large barn. Bathroom will be outside the addition to share with barn use. We love rustic decor. Would like total open floor plan (like a studio) with a fireplace at one end. 9ft ceilings. Bath is 200sq. ft. and living area 900sq. ft. HELP!!!!!!

With what aspect of this project do you need help? I can suggest that I'd prefer a bedroom and with 900 sq. ft, you would certainly have space to have 1 bedroom or even 2 bedrooms.

There is nothing as far as plans. The space is 24 x 40. Would like to have the kitchen on the wall that meets up against the inside barn wall. The bathroom will be a door going into it and also a door that comes in from the barn. The bathroom space will be 200 square feet. There is really no plan yet so this is my problem. So confused on how to even get started. Not sure what to do first.

To get started, I would suggest that you talk to a couple of design/build contractors in your area for ideas (they will all generally come out at least once at no charge). The good thing about talking to a design/build contractor is that they can give you a quick ballpark of cost upfront - really ballpark not specific. A design firm or architect can give you some great ideas, but don't seem to be as intune with the cost of remodel projects.
