To follow is a house design project involving a home floor plan on line example for several spaces in a single, given home. Folks can seek us out for home floor plan design online and home design online, requesting accessible bathroom floor plans. The accessible floor plan can subsequently be made accessible, wherein some features of an accessible bathroom floor plan are evident – sufficiently wide passageways, sufficiently low threshold, appropriate spacing of fixtures, etc – and some features are built in for later access or application as needs arise – hardened walls for grab bars later, tiling in such a way as to readily permit cabinet alterations some day for more undercounter space, etc. It seems that in the swirl of similar home design terms, 'accessible' is winning.
By far, larger house design project challenges to us in Before The Architect come in properly laying out bathroom floor plans for potential accessibility down the road. In these plans, we were commissioned to draw a first floor - L1 - for accessible living, i.e., with the capacity to be accessible to mobility-challenged residents. Much of this specific work is transparent in this home drawing; however, pay closer attention to the 2 full baths on L1 – particularly the bath off the Guest Bedroom and also the wheelchair ramp plan in the Garage.
This'll make it clear as we can as to just how much design flexibility we can muster at Before The Architect in working with our clients in this house design project. This home floor plans online example of a to-be-built was developed from that of the client's after several years of their working on it on their own. In this particular application, they had locally acceptable elevations (after a few adaptation to our home interiors redesign) and a reasonably good idea about the interior. The floor plan just needed polishing — polishing to make the interiors tailored to the way this family of 6 lives and will live when extended to the high likelihood of mobility-challenged grandparents and visiting children grown up. And the owners needed a heap and a half of no-nonsense consulting as they picked and chose their way through alternative layouts and materials' options. Yep, we did that, too.
Before The Architect only did this floor plan online, a foundation plan, and an electrical wiring plan for this project. The owners managed the rest. (Truss roof, truss floor, and panelized walls were specified by others directly from the floor plan. So was the plumbing floor plan.)

There are special features to this floor plan online worth noting herewith -
---L1 is accessible. Note door widths, hallway widths, turning areas, same level, bathroom layouts, garage ramp, etc.
---Study carefully the excellent layout of the Bathroom of the Guest Bedroom on L1. Getting this just right took some in this space. We got turned this way and that to work 2 passage doors and adequate wall space beside the toilet.
---See the treatment on L1 of the passage from Cloak to Garage - how it is home-designed for accessibility.
---Recognize the wider interior walls, unbacked insulation packed, to dampen sound transfer selectively.
---On L2, the bedroom configuration is for the children: one boy in the S.E. and 3 girls in the W. wing.
---Marvel if you will at the way the girls' wing on L2 can be maintained in privacy, right on down to the vestibule entrance to their communal bathroom.
---Considerable effort has been made to keep heavy traffic patterns of kids generally at the perimeters of adult territory rather than at crossing purposes.
---These are especially rural environs, so the need for a formal foyer was cast aside early-on by the owners..
