My own Master Plan

| 1 Comment

My own house (circa 1970) has a minimally functional (could be worse) floor plan which includes two bedrooms a bath, stairs to the basement and a kitchenette in a large multipurpose room all in 900 square feet. Here is a current expansion plan which adds 63 square feet and gains a more functional layout, particularly in the kitchen and bedroom. It also adds (not heated and not counted in the s.f.) a mudroom entry. I have also shown new stairs paralleling the basement stair which would go to a finished off third bedroom in the current attic. This would require a dormer and add about 200 square feet. This is a good example of a low budget transformation to gain considerable function without gaining a lot of volume and area.

  1. The architect’s wife, here. Just had to pipe in that I’d call this more the “reality plan” than the master plan. The master plan (which could also be known as the fantasy in-our-dreams plan) is much more ambitious. But I’ll happily take this one as a start!
