We were contacted by Mr.Windschauer in a panic. He had a problem; paid a lot of money to have a luxury home designed by an architect. Upon completion of the drawings, it was apparent the layout did not meet his needs. The home, while not small, was certainly not as roomy as you would imagine. But most importantly, cost to construct as designed would choke a Microsoft Millionaire. He was between a rock and a hard place, he paid a kings ransom for the plans and still did not have a solution and a family ready for a new house.
He did the right thing, he called us. This plan we created for him started with an oversized 4 car Car Garage, with plenty of room for cars and toys. The Utility room was located centrally near the Kitchen so cooking and laundry can be performed in close proximity. A Kennel is close by so the pets can be quickly put away if needed. The kitchen features a large island with plenty of seating on a large island so feeding the troops can occur efficiently. A separate Living and Family room are divided by a large fireplace to separate adults and kids while entertaining guests.
Five kids bedrooms provide a room for every kid or a living quarter for parents in later years. Multiple bathrooms serve multiple kids at one time to alleviate overcrowding. A Game Room with an operable door allows the younger guests a place of their own, and can be used as a study area if the grades begin to suffer. A large rear lanai is adjacent to the Living and Family room so that entertaining can spill into the outdoors and the large kitchen island will serve as the gathering party. The Master Bedroom is large and roomy, but not too large, and sports a master bath with a large walk-in shower & separate his and hers closet. The Hers closet disproportionately sized as one would expect. Problem solved.
