Currently at the top of the stairs the is a small 1m part of landing to our bedroom door with its “en cupboard”. In the new design we move the door to be in line with the top of the stairs so the landing is integrated into the new bedroom when the “en cupboard” (it just has a sink & shower, not even a door!) will be extended to as en-suite with sink, shower & WC. This is a “jack & jill” en-suite which can be assessed from both this bedroom which will become Diva G’s and the spare bedroom. I see doing this room as potentially being a stand alone project before we start the overall re-build.
The bathrooms have been the rooms we have played with most in the design and using the “Jack & Jill” approach has allowed all permanent residents to have their own en-suite, as well as the spare room as well as having a bathroom accessed from the landing. The bathroom accessed from the landing is also accessed from Lil H’s bedroom which is created by lifting the roof over the existing WC and wardrobe storage area. What is currently Diva G’s room is knocked together with the bathroom to create our fourth bedroom which shares the Jack & Jill en suite with her new bedroom. The corridor between the fourth bedroom and Lil H’s en suite leads to our new master bedroom suite.
Our Master bedroom suite is all newly built above the new garage, dining and kitchen area. I can’t wait to retreat to this bedroom – I may even throw a cartwheel or two ’cause hey, I’ll have the room so what the hell! But seriously how I plan this space I need to really think carefully about and I will be using hanging rails for a while before Rob Lancaster makes wardrobes.
There you have it four bedrooms, three bathrooms, want to check out the new elevations?
