Looking for someone with residential floor plan design experience that can propose various options for the layout of a living area in a proposed shop.
The shop will be 24 feet wide and 40 feet long with 10 foot ceilings. The 1st floor will be the shop/garage and above the shop/garage will be a finished living area. The roof design shall not use trusses, but should use rafters in order to make for a living space on a 2nd floor above the shop/garage. The roof pitch should be 10/12 in order to provide more space on the 2nd floor. We would like to use dormers on each side of the building as shown in the attached renderings to provide more space in the 2nd floor. Ideally the stairs to the upstairs should be located along a wall and not in the middle of the space as that would be less efficient for use of the shop/garage on the 1st floor.
We need the shop to have 1 large bedroom and 1 smaller bedroom, kitchenette, living room area, small dining area and closet space for each bedroom. We are also interested in layouts that provide 3 smaller bedrooms if the designer can accommodate in the design. Note that with the 2nd floor ceiling being subject to the pitch of the roof the floor plan on the 2nd floor will not be able to utilize the whole 24 foot width of the structure; however we would like to explore extending the wall heights from the 1st floor up partially into the 2nd floor and joining with the rafters in order to extend the usable space above. This floor plan will be housing 4 young children and 2 adults for a short amount of time. This will not be an indefinite living situation, but will be a 2 year living space until our other home is built.
We are looking for an experienced floor plan designer to find an efficient floor plan design layout that incorporates the above mentioned items in a very efficient manner that uses the space very effectively.
