I love your design. I love how high the roof is over the existing covered patio to let more light in. I'm not sure where the water will flow from the new roof you put in the design - water drainage is something we have to consider and we need a gutter on the existing room at the rear of our house as well as the pool house. It appears the wood beams are open so we'd need to figure out how cover the entire roof to avoid dripping water. My neighbor/contractor thought it appeared we would need a steel beams so cost will be a factor. Also, I'm unsure of the addition of a taller block wall on the west and north walls of the existing patio to support the new taller roof, but the design is excellent and gives us a lot to consider. I really like the fireplace (I think if we do a fireplace it would have to wait a few years, but it works so well in the design!) and the block wall to the South with the cutout which mimics our new carport. That will really tie the front yard and back yard together from the street view. Thank you!
Thanks for the design! I like all the plant ideas.
The staircase, shelves, loft, and bathroom are a gorgeous concept! I love how much space is available in the living area, and the shelves on the stairs are an awesome detail. It creates a closet-landing spot. I'd like to change the materials used for the walls/counters to give it a better aesthetic, possibly move the mini-fridge, and turn the bathroom door into a pocket door. But, otherwise this is a fantastic layout. Well done!!
Very well researched (Balinese/NZ) and designed house, excellent initiative shown and a very functional house of appropriate size.
