I'm located in Sydney and I've got a block of land which is 13.5m wide and 35m in length. I'm planning to build two storey house with 5 bed rooms.
I'm bit confused about the layout of my ground floor design. I've got few requirements like
Living Area size around 5.5x5.5 atleast
I've got one suggestion which is attached. But I don't like the alfresco on the side. Not sure but i feel the alfresco should be on the back side.
I talked to my architect and there are some structural limitation to have beam for any area larger than 6 meter. I buy that Can you please suggest any changes to accomodate in this design to bring the alfresco back side without affecting the living area size.
I've attached one suggestion.

Hey rajshah welcome to the forum
Here's some tips to get you started
1.Try setting out your block , front and side setbacks, contours, trees,etc on graph paper to scale 1:100
2.Using the same scale on a separate sheet, cut out the rooms sizes, colour the room to uses, ie, bedrooms, baths, F, M, K, A, etc
3.Tape rooms to site plan, move rooms around to suit, limit passages to 5% wasted space
4. Repeat for upper floor
5. Work out a m2 and budget price
try being innovative with your presentations and you will get a better response + it also helps others
