New house floorplan

I’ve given you the grand tour of the new house, but I know it can be tricky to figure out the layout from photos.

So, behold! The floorplan!

(Click on the image to biggify it.)

The cellar was not actually on the real estate agent’s floorplan that I used as my template so it’s not necessarily accurate but everything else is to scale. The space labelled ‘store’ is a bit misleading: the plans suggest it’s under the main roof but it’s actually a tacked-on shed (not sure how far back it goes so I won’t be able to adjust the plans until we get in there).

The studio is also a bit unintentionally misleading too – the floor space is huge but the walls are sloping so much of the space is not fully usable. It is still plenty big enough, just not quite as big as it looks from the plans.

While househunting we saw a lot of odd floorplans. I’m talking sole toilets at the other end of the house to the bathroom, kitchens at the front of the house, living areas so isolated you’d imagine they’d be rarely used, bedrooms that can only be accessed by walking through other rooms, sunrooms so narrow they’re virtually useless…

Some were dealbreakers and didn’t get past the online browsing stage, no matter how pretty the house.

We particularly liked homes with the bedrooms together and with the living area(s) off the kitchen. A formal lounge, dining and second toilet weren’t on the essentials list but they are a nice bonus.

One essential was an office for me, preferably separated in some way from the main house, be it upstairs or in the backyard. We were even looking at properties that had garages that we could convert so I am relieved that we don’t have to go to all that effort and cost. I am so looking forward to being able to ‘leave’ my office for the night.

Our current home has:
2 bedrooms (one used as office)
1 bathroom & toilet
1-car carport

The new home has:
3 bedrooms
1 bathroom
2 toilets
Living room
2-room attic (to be used as office/studio)
2-car garage
Garden shed

It is massive by comparison, but we look forward to growing into it.

I am still pinching myself that we found everything that we were looking for – and then some.

  • El sistema romano, viene de Roma como su nombre lo indica, Ah se desarrollaron las primeras instituciones del derecho civil y fueron recuperadas por la europa continental ms tarde. Los cdigos de Justiniano y siglos ms tarde el napolonico son las muestras ms importantes de este sistema de derecho escrito y codificado. Este sistema fue recuperado por el Alemn Savigny pues daba mayor seguridad jurdica a una Alemania no unificada por el derecho. Napolen redact su Cdigo civil que por su parte influy al Cdigo alemn y a los dems europeos. Este sistema se instal en Amrica Latina gracias a Espaa y Portugal y es el que se utiliza en todos los pases de la Europa Continental (Espaa, Francia, Alemania, Portugal, italia, Austria, Blgica, Holanda, etc. etc.) es un sistema de derecho escrito, las leyes dominan el sistema, pero tampoco quiere decir que no exista la costumbre y que no existan los precedentes judiciales (cada da se toman ms en cuenta).

  • With havin so much written content material do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My web site has a great deal of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like plenty of it really is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help avoid content material from being ripped off? I’d actually appreciate it.
