Forum Title: Master Suite Addition
My wife and I are contemplating addition an addition to our house and I are looking for opinions/suggestions/comments regarding our idea. Here's a little background. Our home was built in 1942 and is 1170 sqft, which sits on 7800sqft. It has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms (a closet was converted to a half prior to our purchase). It also has an office and a single car garage. Here's an older photo of the front to give you an idea. We've the type of couple who likes to do a lot of the work ourselves and take pride in our home. Our last big project was redoing our backyard. The main entrance to our backyard is through a set of french doors in our dining room. Now to the addition... Please pardon the MS Paint rendition, but it was easiest to add on to our backyard design. The pink/purple section would be the addition. It would be aprox. 620 sqft of master bedroom, bathroom and walk in closet. Here are my concerns, please let me know if they're valid. I think our home has a good flow to it for its size. The addition would be on the opposite side of the home compared to the other bedrooms. We will have to walk through the kitchen to access it as well. On one hand, I think it's a good idea as the guestrooms will have their privacy. On the other, will having to walk through the kitchen negatively affect the property value? Would it be considered a bad flow? Our kitchen would somewhat be centralized with the addition. When we built our backyard, we had an addition in mind, so we would have french doors in the bedroom that would access the patio, to tie everything together. We currently use our garage for storage, but if we were to park a car inside, you would have a choice of going down the hall to the bedroom or into the kitchen when entering from the garage door. Again, all suggestions/comments welcome and thanks for reading my lengthy first post.
