Bedroom Floor Lay-out - Plan attached...Advice Please
January 16, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hi All - I have two drawings/lay-out of a proposed garage level floor. The first one - by architect - shows a wider garage (so two cars fit side by side) and more space for a playroom and a bedroom in the space in front of the garage. The second one is modified by keeping the existing length of the garage (cars enter in tandem) and adds in an extra bedroom at the front of the house with a window.

I am not sure of the cost of either but would it be worth adding in a bedroom at the front, plus a window or is the larger playroom space more beneficial? If anyone else has clever ideas, please let me know. I have a bedroom dilemma to follow which picks up on this one (and is the reason for adding in a bedroom on garage level).

I know you have several posts regarding layouts. This one seems to be for the first floor, while the other ones are for the second floor. Is that correct?
If that is the case, I'm a bit confused,.,the staircase seems to be on the opposite corner when looking at your other dilemmas, which have the staircase on the lower right had corner.

Thank you all. For some reason, the site wouldn't let me attach a windows file (which was a snapshot of a PDF architect drawing). Sorry for being so confusing and I appreciate looking at this.

There are three floors (actually 4 but leaving aside the basement). I posted a bedroom floor (level 3) lay-out dilemma ; and this is a garage floor (level 1). I took out a bedroom on level 3 and added a new one on level 1 so that there are 4 bedrooms in the house (house is unfortunately narrow and tall).

I wondered if this configuration was better than the previous one which showed a wider garage and a wider playroom area as opposed to the new one with an added bedroom and a small playroom. The new lay-out also means that the bedroom level 3 has only two bedrooms and 1 study/guest room with skylights only.( Not really functional as a bedroom because there are no windows)

OnePlan - happy to consult with you in another fashion if you are willing. I am seeing my architect today (these are all my ideas!) but he is less of an ideas man and more of a functional guy.

Thanks for everyone's input. Any other lay-out options or ideas?
