Hi All been wasting countless hours trying to reconfigure the floorplan of the property we're moving into but I keep running into the same issues. I know some of you are particularly good at this, especially the forumites who have the necessary architectural background. Basically the challenge/constraints are: - I want to maintain the house as a 4x2. It was already extended 4 yrs ago but the focus was cramming as many students into the property. Now we have to move into it Whilst I'm open to having more windows or sliding doors I don't want to further extend the property. - I need the semi-open plan section at the rear of the property ie where the kitchen and family is, to be one large room that fits in a LARGER kitchen + island that has at least a window, dining and casual living /TV room. In my mind, that means getting rid of the 2nd bathroom and laundry that's there currently. But if do that, where do I put the 2nd bathroom and laundry elsewhere in the house? Plus, it would be a waste of dollars to dismantle a perfectly functioning new bathroom and laundry (these were built 4 yrs ago remember). Hopefully the diagram doesn't confuse anyone as its the original architectural plans. Help pleease!
