How many times have you read the dimensions of a room on a floor plan and then realized your existing furniture doesn't fit like you thought into the finished room? Measure your existing furniture before deciding on final sizes for a home. If you're not sure how large of room you need, measure your existing furniture, tables and walking area to determine how much space you REALLY need in your next floor plan. Add on additional area if you're trying to add space to your next home.
This idea was put forward by our first architect for consideration. The idea is to take the outline of the garage (original and new) on the east side and use this as a footprint to construct two new 'houses' to either side of the current house.
