House #500 Initial Analysis to Develop Floor Plan by Built4ever House #500 Initial Analysis to Develop Floor Plan by Built4ever
I submitted the sketch for House 500 a few weeks ago, mostly as an exercise in OUTRAGEOUS ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN and to push myself to the limits, but, alas it has been made known by the forces in the universe that more information is needed about this home, so I am working backwards from the perspective sketch to try to hammer out a floor plan. These two sketches give you an idea of how my slightly warped mind works in regards to such a feat. Many dimensions will be altered, and some exterior features will surely be moved like chimneys. I'd love to do a real medieval/fantasy house but I'm just too practical and stuck in luxury home land!! Budget estimate: 3 million bucks, at least.

So go for it! Critique it, throw some ideas out there, now's the time to do it. Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings!!

This especially quirky plan delights, just like just about everything you put to paper, really. It's somewhere between 'old-fashioned and charming' and 'audacious and crazy', and I love every bit of it. I love how the placement of the chimney seems to imply the master bedroom has a fireplace somewhere near the middle of it - this is something I've never heard of, but proper placement and decoration could turn a large upper room cozy in the weirdest way. I don't suppose we'll ever get to see plans for the second floor / loft or basement / sub-basement / dungeon / hidden wizard's lab?

It's a very complex multi-level home, not even sure it's completely do-able. I'd be inclined to heavily modify the front before I finish the second and third floors to get things to work and get proportions right.

Can you just right-click and download? Then you can zoom in with your favorite viewer on your computer. I can read this deviation okay on my laptop screen "as is." Are you on a small screen device?

Utterly beautiful...I love the jumbled elements of the split level design, and sense of weight imparted by the heavy beams juxtaposes with the extreme elevation of the roof....

I'm not sure about the guest bedroom on the ground floor, lovely as it is. That seems a natural place for the sitting room + study or library (and one absolutely has to have a larger leather-scented library in a house like this, to provide somewhere to withdraw to after dinner :-) ) There just seems to be a lack overall of enough living social area on the ground floor? (I could live without the pizza oven, but appreciate this may be an American necessity. Is there going to be enough kitchen storage? Oooh- just tsaw the pantry, great!)

A cloakroom, in the old manner, might be nice for storage near the door too; in that sense the study feels a little cut off from the other social areas of the house, but perhaps that is your intention?

I love the idea of 3 separate stairs despite the extravagence...(please say the 1st floor is accessible throughout?) is there a basement too?

Built4ever Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
Plan is tight, fer sure. Leather scented library is to the right! Pizza oven could be small fireplace. Yes, study is more private and quiet. There could be a substantial basement, and lots of stuff on upper levels too.

move grand staircase right to the bonus room area, with a smaller bonus room, private study behind (perhaps a hidden entrance). that will allow you to expand the Great Room, and move the bay as well. Then the Dining hall could be a little bigger.

I WAS thinking about expanding the dining/great room area. Stair location is partly dependent on floors above. I have to check the second floor/master suite.

OK, I really *want* one of these! I'm torn between plunking it down in the middle of 15 rows of ticky-tacky boxes or the middle of 15 acres of trees in the mountains. It would be cool to freak out a whole neighborhood, but not as much fun as having this beast lurking in a forest.

Nice!

WELL, it came from the infinite village sketch, so original vision was a village around it. However, it IS the tallest house..."Beast." I like that. Let's nickname it "The Beast."

Yesterday, I saw on television a house estimate 58 million bucks (LA).
But, I pay 3 million for a house that I live that 58 million for a gadget uncomfortable. (This is the little remark).

" Magnifique, incroyable et extraordinaire " :D .
Your creation is beautiful.
Great job ...

Interesting bizniss idea: build a spectacular house, and charge admission. Similar to those gardens in north Atlanta. We are going there soon.

Let me ask you something: Anything in particular you are looking for in regards to that woodworker's shop that is being cataloged, from the guy who passed on? They are taking pics and making descriptions. I think I'm heading there in mid May now. Lots of good stuff.
