Beech Avenue Loft Floorplan

This morning I was up at 3am trying to figure out the best floor plan for upstairs.  It’s challenging because the family bathroom at the front is predominantly under the eaves, apart from a foot width at full height which runs along the ridge.  We have made the dormer smaller to save work downstairs but unfortunately it has had a knock on effect in the bathroom.

It was important to me to have the shower, sink and toilet along the ridge to take advantage of the full ceiling height which is 6′ 8″.  The solution I’ve come up with is to allow the shower to eat into the master bedroom, because the ridge is where the wall of the shower cubicle is.  In fact the ridge support pillar will be hidden in the stud wall between the shower and landing.

The left side of the picture is the front of the house and the right is the back…  I’m pretty damn chuffed with the floor plan – in fact it’s fair to say ‘I’ve completely nailed it…!’

The view from the master bedroom through to the bathroom.  The shower cubicle is on the left and the wardrobes will be recessed in the space where the things are on the floor…

Looking into the stairwell – but the wardrobe in the bedroom below has not yet been removed so you can’t yet see where the staircase will go down.  This view is from the top of the staircase.

Spatial planning is one of my absolute favourite aspects of property developing because envisaging ‘what might be’ is the most natural skill to me in the world…
