Your floorplan is one of the most essential aspects in creating your ‘Forever Home’. It’s worth spending time on the floorplan to make sure it’s working as hard as it can for you. Get it looked over by an expert for a ‘sanity check’ , measure out spaces, see how it can adapt.
A floorplan needs to be flexible so rooms can be more than one thing at any given time. Create rooms that are adaptable so they may have one purpose now, and be something else when your family needs change over time.
This is also the time to ensure your plans create maximum energy efficiencies as possible. Zoning for heating and cooling, cross ventilation, window orientation, type and sizes. Also think about noise mitigation, which is often forgotten about.
