Area involving the master bedroom, main bathroom, second bedroom, small hallway area and closet space. Wood floors in good condition. The bathroom is outdated and too small. The bedroom layout prevents optimal queen bed orientation (i.e. to East to face the 3-bay window with nice view to the garden). Closet space in the master bedroom is small. In the re-design, we are looking for ways to creatively and cost effectively optimize the space, while still providing a large master, a larger bathroom and also adequate closet / storage space - and maintaining a second bedroom. Ceilings are 8-foot high throughout. Walls are 5 inches thick. House is located in Alexandria, VA (US).
1) Cannot remove fireplace chamber.
2) Can reduce size of second bedroom, but cannot eliminate it.
3) Would like a tub/shower combination in bathroom - but NO separate shower is needed.
4) Would like the bathroom to be a bit larger to accommodate vanity with storage and more easily open door.
5) Increase size of master to allow orientation of queen bed to face east to the the 3-bay window.
6) Would like appropriate room closet space (more in master).
1) Meeting design considerations
2) Affordability of construction from design
