Floor Plan (Sketch)

Here is our floor plan sketch.


  • Front part of the house is dedicated to a 1 bedroom unit.
  • We've extended laundry to match the width of garage (now also includes a 'mud room' - to hang bags, store shoes etc)
  • Media Room in middle of the house has been turned into a study nook / wine rack / WIP / Ensuite & WIR to Bedroom 2 (which is now the main bedroom in our part of the house).
  • Swapped windows between Living & Dining Room
  • Created an alcove between 2 windows in Living Room so we can put a fire place.
  • Putting timber bi-folds out to Alfresco with no corner wall.
  • Expanded width of house by 1m which gives us a bigger family room, kitchen and essentially allows us to have the study nook.
  • We put a 4th bedroom on the back of house with French doors opening to the back yard. This is going to be a playroom and has a wardrobe the full width of the room.
  • Created a 'store room' behind the toilet space opening to the outside (for storage of mower etc - didn't want to waste valuable backyard with a shed).
  • Made Bedroom 2 bigger (our room)
  • Oh & we've flipped garage & self-contained unit around to best suit our block.
NB: Eden Brae don't tend to make so many modifications to their plans however we needed to due to converting part of the house to a unit.

So, what do you think?

Great use of the space. No areas wasted,big fan of that.
The self contained unit will be great too. We considered that when deciding on our design so even though we initially didnt want a formal lounge dining it will be the perfect size to convert to oldies accom in the future when they decide to retire and travel.

Look forward to seeing your build progress.
