I’ve had quite a few requests for the floor plan so here is the final version. There is honestly nothing I would change about it at this stage, it works so well! I love that the kids have their own ‘wing’ and that they can get outside from the french doors off their hallway and playroom. This also lets air flow though the whole house. We also chose to put the kids rooms down that side because it’s south facing, which is the darkest part of the house, which doesn’t matter for rooms that are only used at night.
The whole house gets the morning sun and then the front rooms get the afternoon sun. I always thought I’d want a north facing backyard but I like the morning sun, especially in the summer when it’s hot, it means the house stays cooler. It’ll be interesting to see what I think after our first winter here though.
I also like the cavity sliding door between the living room and kids hallway, which keeps the noise down in their rooms at night. And the study nook is one of my absolute favourite things about the house!
We added a roller door so you can access the backyard from the front and could park boats, extra cars or caravans down the side. None of which we have, but it’s been helpful with the landscaping to have that access.
The rooms aren’t massive but they are definitely big enough. If rooms are too big you can feel like you’re rattling around in them, so I think the sizes are perfect. Having said that, the deck is massive and that’s awesome! It’s like a whole extra living space.
Any questions, just ask!
