Home Inspection Today

We had the Home Inspection today, the closing for the new mortgage is tentatively scheduled for March 24th. My dad shot down my Plan C, so I went back to the drawing board for plan D...

This design keeps the Master Bedroom REALLY large, but makes the walk in closet an odd shape. It minimizes hall space in the Master Bath and has a funky jog in the hallway to reach the Master Bedroom. The Laundry room has just the right amount of space and the full bath upstairs has plenty of room. The dashed line is where I would shift the laundry room out a bit further and shrink Bedroom #2 a little bit. Bedroom #2 becomes 11' x 12' - Bedroom #3 stays 11' x 9' - Bedroom #4 stays 10' x 9' - Bedroom #5 becomes 12.5' x 9'

I just received the potential plans from The Gallick Corporation. There are three different versions of the front elevation and two different floor plans for the second floor. Here's Plan A.

And Plan B...

Plan B was closest to my original idea, but I now see that it's rubbish. For one, it puts the laundry room in a rather large room, and the bathroom in a very small room. So, I think we'll be flipping that. My father put together a plan to have the Master Bedroom in the back of the house, very much like Plan A. His idea also included a set of stairs to the attic level, and a loft area up there. With two dormers on the front, centered over the garage doors, there would be plenty of upstairs space for offices or a lounge area. I think the loft would also be visually appealing. So, here is plan C...

I'm just a bit concerned that the width of the Master Bedroom is so thin in the center, so there will be more tweaking.
