The Cottage 2, 1st floor only

I’ve been thinking and talking to people about the last plan. T suggested it might be good if the living room was larger- I decided to make it bigger to the right so it wouldn’t block the bathroom window. C suggested putting the front door over so it would go in through an existing window instead of through supporting walls, a very fine idea :). I decided to move the bathroom door so it wouldn’t be right in front of you when you first came into the front hall.

The Cottage

This is a proposed renovation to a Cottage in Maine. The front door used to come in through the diningroom, and there also used to be a back entry off of the kitchen door. Parking is closest to the new proposed front porch. Hum… I noticed that I forgot to put in most of the windows…

First floor:

I extended the 2nd floor to be above the kitchen and gave it walls. This provided a sound barrier (you couldn’t do anything in the original house without everyone else knowing) and helped provide support for the southern wall (It flexes alarmingly in the winter winds)

Second Floor:
