Floor Plans

All renerings ©Jasonoah Design Build

Here is one very tangible way in which these designs have had to bow to budgetary demands: were we of less modest means we would either have bought a larger barn frame or added a number of "wings" or shed additions to give us more living space. Since we could afford neither of these options, our architects have had to be very creative with filling our extensive list of demands. We think they have done a marvelous job. Looking at the lower level floor plans one will notice that they have accommodated our desire to have a master bedroom with attached walk-thorough closet and master bath. They have also located the office space off the master suite (if you could call it that) - a feature which we rather like. The kids will share rooms, at least until such a time as this arrangement just ceases to work. Their rooms are narrow but tall - 12' for one and 16' for the other - both of which have lofts for added play space. The main living floor consists of a long living-dining-kitchen space. You will be able to see from one end of the frame to the other and right up to the rafters in this space. The loft is indicated by a dotted line. Notice how there are a few steps up to a "library" (movie theater? guest room?), then up to the kids' loft.
