Littlehouse First Floor Layout

 

Littlehouse First Floor Layout

by admin on Feb.07, 2009, under Planning

Just before framing, we had made the decision to close in the SouthEast corner, which was originally to have been made into the kitchen.  Instead we intended to use this as a bedroom.

Since getting the Littlehouse dried in, we have been staying inside it at night, rather than using the tent trailer.  It has become apparent that a bedroom is not a good use for the 8′ x 8′ space.  It’s just too crowded in there with a decent sized bed.

So we now intend to revert back to our original design, and put a kitchen in that space, removing the interior wall that had separated it from the rest of the house.  We will use a hideaway bed in the living area for sleeping at night, and fold it away in the mornings.

Here is a diagram of our initial plans for the first floor.  It is apparent that we will need to use small appliances, such as those used in RVs, in the kitchen, in order to get enough counterspace to make it comfortable.

And here is an initial stab at our electrical layout for the first floor.  We’re putting in plenty of outlets, as I think you can never have too many of those.  The three rows of lights in the living area are on separate switches, so that they don’t all have to be on at the same time.  We’ll probably run three circuits for lighting and four circuits for electrical outlets on the first floor.
