Windows & Doors
Mar 02, 2007 11:28 am
as we have altered our plan slightly, on the reduced bedroom it shows that instead of having one window facing south (1543 high x 610 wide) and one window facing west (1543 high x 1810 wide) we have shown on the plan one window facing south (1543 high x 850 wide) and one window facing west (1543 high x 850 wide).
My questions are:
Will this allow enough light into the room (they are both in the one corner of the room)?
Would it be better to have the south facing window replaced with a horizontal window up high almost the length of the room?
And should I insist that the west facing window be made larger as this is where I presume most of the light will come from?
The bedroom size will be 3000x3950.
Also, in the family room we are supposed to have one south facing window (1800 high x 2710 wide) but are contemplating replacing that with a horizontal window up high as well (maybe 514 high x 2710 wide), as we thought the best spot for a TV would be that wall, and there is one that size already in the dining - so they would sort of match. Along with that is a sliding door in the family and dining that open onto what would have been the outdoor room (it has been deleted due to the shape of the block), but as our main space in the backyard will be to the west side, we want both doors to open to the west - one out the family (no change) and swap the window and door in the dining. Is this a bad move as far as light and heat?

Also an expansion joint. It will probably be better to silicon it? What I don't like is that joints between panels are not properly rendered and look ugly.
