Tonight we present floor plan updates. These are the first drafts drawn up by IONCON from Ryan’s sketches. We have met with our engineers and contractor and made modifications, but most of the what you see has stayed the same. We will be turning the half bath into a full. Figure it will help us scrubadub in double time and significantly increase the value of the home.
This first one is the basic layout of the containers. The forty foot long container runs horizontally along the back. The second forty foot container has been cut in half. Each open twenty foot half is welded to an end of the forty footer, resulting in a U-shape. A wall will be constructed to enclose the front of the home. PEX piping will be laid for future radiant floor heating and concrete will be poured in the middle, open space. A roof will cover the entire structure.
Next up, the outside view. Top left is the front entrance. Top right is the back. Bottom left and bottom right are side view (roof pitched in back and sloping down towards front of house).
Lastly, interior. Enter bottom, off-center left. Open floor plan. Living room area to the left. Straight ahead we will be removing the center wall of the forty footer, and lining the back wall will be our kitchen and all kitchen appliances. Bar top island and dining table in same area. Bathrooms to the left and right of kitchen. Master bedroom is bottom left. Two smaller bedrooms on the right. Now, imagine the 40 foot container. The top of the container has not been removed. It is essentially the ceiling of the kitchen and bathrooms. But, it has the mega roof covering it. So, this creates a 8’x40′ loft space above the kitchen/bathroom area. Still trying to figure out access to this space. Spiral staircase? Fortified ladder?
It’s simple, but functional. In addition to standard closet spaces, the tops of the twenty foot container sections will be able to be used for storage (accessible by ladder). We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all the changes, drafts and finalizations!
In other news…Coming straight outta my hometown, Ryan Williamson has built quite the DIY bungalow. This little write up is a great read and definitely up and down our alley. Enjoy!
