make garage a 4+ car garage at least. get rid of toilet and work shop. (move work shop into a walk in space somewhere else .
put toilet next to theatre room as we will have more space there now that we are setting that wall forward ( level 1 and basement have more space there ))
Theatre room - step down into the room. Sound proof .
livinf room - 6 metre high ceilings (void) - STEP IP A FEW STEPS.makes it seperate to Dinning and makes it more Grand.
allow lots of meters for Dinning (not too close to livinf and kitchen bench)
panty need to be wider ; allow for comfortable space for cooking- not narrow.
laundry can be 3m wide. Shoe pantry (turns into ironing walk in room- make it comfortable size to iron plus laundry baskets and storage wall)
we love the massive storage room in basement. add cupboards in garage for garage stage. make garage enter larger to accomodate 4th car to enter.

.keep loft where it is . Make shoe panty laundry storage and iroming space. Make pantry larger , it's a second kitchen where I will cook 99% of the time . slightly hange shoe pantry position or door Poseidon to front of house (make it more CONNECTED to laundry Rather than front of house. -
back yard to have guest house (huge party room with kitchen)
allow space also for large pond/fountain with sunbeds to sit on the water)
AT FRONT GRAND ENTRY - add large floor to ceiling shoes + cloak walk In Cupboard - woth slide doors or big iron doors - can walk into it like a shoe pantry but not huge - rectangle not sqaure shape.
make sure all hallways are legs - over 2m. Don't like small hallways for such a large home.
bidet and toilet in MASTER bedroom and level 1 main toilet.
all bathroom /toilets to have 2 SINKS.
made breakfast bar book and study nook at level 2 (bedroom level) in the space where wall will not bet set forward allowing more space there (next to laundry shoot hallway)
mall bedrooms (besides master ) don't need to have huge bathrooms but always 2 sinks. - clothing storage is important (allow for large walk ins in every bedroom)
add party room (guest house - including small kitchen) seperate to house at back yard . (It should be enough space to allow kitchen , lounge , bed . but for now it is a party space with kitchen mainly for kids for parties.)
move workshop from garage to basement storage area . (tools bench + cupboards) in storage. (We won't be using the space for fixing things it's just a place to put tools) (makes room in garage for 4th car)
move toilet from gagrge to basement - next to lift .
put bowling alley at rear/ next to theatre room- narrow with a door Next to theatre door. (reference bowling alley from photo we uploaded for tonight dimensions) it's basically a narrow long room.
This is what we want to discuss and amend before our next sitting.
Firstly we are determined to have a spiral staircase if it means re jigging the plans to incorporate then that’s the path we want to go down.
We want a seperate staircase entry from basement to ground level, preferably hidden towards the back of the home. We will draw up some possible alternatives and I will post via Facebook groups.
We would like to have our laundry upstairs rather than where it sits currently.
That way it frees up the walk in pantry to give our desired outcome.
We are still not convinced about the master bedroom layout, especially the WIR. If it also means we get rid of the kids lounge room to create more space than that can go also. We want to create an opulent feel in the rooms rather than the open space on Level 1 ( bedrooms)
We want a formal dining to be seperate from the lounge room on Level G ( could mean that the cigar room becomes the formal dining area)
I spoke with dad and I’ll attach him on this email thread if it also means we extend the home in depth or width then amend to accommodate.
There are a few floor plans we found online which are a little similar to our current one, which ill also post on Facebook groups, which has a look and feel of modern but is classical.
This has been our brief from day 1.
In other word we don’t mind the house internally or externally being symmetrical.
As you could respect and appreciate that this is our forever home, this is important to us to have this done correctly and to our liking.
Call me to discuss if you wish, alternatively we can discuss at our next meeting hopefully this Thursday or Friday.
