I am rebuilding a house that is 26x44. It is currently a rambler and I need to maximize the space. This house is situated over a scenic view and I would like the design to consider that the north wall (44') should have a lot of windows, all bedrooms will be on this wall as well.
The plan is to have vaulted ceilings on one end, the area will be approx 26x 20, and will be the kitchen and living room area with the remaining 26'x24' to have a dining room, master suite (with master bath and closet) and mechanicals on the main floor. There will be 2 small bedrooms above with dormers facing the scenic view.
This is a simple initial design. I expect that I will need modifications after I have some time to review it, we can plan for the modifications as a separate job after this one is completed. I need some basic design done for high level estimates as well as a visual aid to assist with final design choices.
I would prefer to have this done in Chief Architect Home Designer so I can get good materials lists, make some small design changes, and see virtual renderings. I will require the file for my records and use at the completion of the project.
