Contemporary Home Plan under 900 sq feet
« on: August 20, 2005, 09:37:31 AM »
Couldn't sleep last night so went looking on line for a simple contemporary floorplan.  Found one on e-plans, copied it to the clipboard but couldn't figure a way to paste it into this forum.  It's an interesting 2 bedroom 2 bath plan that seems very open and bright.

So directions will have to suffice for those who want to see the plan.

1. Go  to www.

2. Plan HWEPL03207

Reminds me of "Shelter-One" houses.

You could do the same with John's Enchilada Plans, or even the basic House Plans using a shed roof. Look at his construction sequence for his backwoods retreat.

Here's the the whole page of the plan Trish was talking about.

(I love to copy and paste URLs.  Wouldn't dream of trying to hand copy that mess out.)  

To get the diagram here, in Windows, there's obviously some way to do it with other systems:  

a) Right-click on the image, which opens a little window.

b) Left-click on "properties" down at the bottom.  This opens another new window.

c) Somewhere in the middle of that window is a URL.  Easiest to select copy and paste here.  (select, then control-c and control-v, or select,  click on edit up at the top.

d)  We could click on this and get the floor-plan.   But to get it to show here then select it in the message box that you are typing in, click the 4th thing from the left (just before the letter icon) in the line above the smileys up there.  At one stage in my life I even knew the HTML to use instead of clicking the "insert image" button.

Nice house for a very private site.  Very compact plumbing layout.  Although, all other things being equal I think I'd prefer a public bathroom--keep a sawdust toilet outside for such people?

My house started out with that basic T shape and evolved from there to this.

Only one bathroom though, can't see the point in having two, no one ever spends that much time in there that it becomes a problem. The original plan for my block just wouldn't fit so was abandoned

The T shape was better fit and gave me the best solar aspect on the block.

OK Trish, you're on.

I was intrigued by this plan.  Elegant, simple.  Efficient plumbing.  Designed as a weekend place, so lacking a few things.

We were about to over-house ourselves once again.  Plans in the works.  We'll  use them somewhere else.

Started messing around.  As usual, the dimensions aren't really correct.  Think the architects do that on purpose.  Do they John?

Blew it up a little to allow for more closets, WD, and more generous bedrooms.   We're building it.
Think it will work well, even in the desert.  We put 4' overhangs on it all round.  Shed roof from 10' on the low side to 12'10" on the high side.
It's a dry heat.  Right.

I rather like that plan. It is efficient and need not be as rigidly symmetrical as it appears. The bedrooms and bathrooms need not be exactly the same size or layout. The one could be a workroom and the bath perhaps a utility room with sink and toilet if needed.

A stiff plan like this is often improved by loosening up with a bit of shaking when it gets out to the site and you really get a feel as to how you will use the house and what it will open out to...
None of us are as smart as all of us.
