Which layout would work best?


Where are the windows located?

I would have the bedroom rignt when you come in the door, then the bath and closet areas along the bath.
The laundry could be in a closet that would be acceseed off the hallway outside this room.

or

Do like a hotel room, Bath on one side closet on the other then into the bedroom.

It is funny, I almost laid this out, then I remembered that I don't like giving away free design any more.

Do you think this would work better as our master suite? The first pic is our current layout, and the second pic is what we would like to do. The shower in the second picture is a stand-up shower stall with sliding doors. We have already checked under the house to make sure plumbing will work for this, so no worries there.

ummmm, can you walk through walls???? I don't see a proper way to get into the the new master suite. unless you have to walk past the washer and dryer every time you go to your room

Thats what that white rectangle is directly under the dryer. That was normally the door to the second bedroom, which we will use as the entry to the master. I tried creating a new thread and they merged them. I wish they would have just replaced this one.

I would recommend the following:

1. make sure you have a minimum of 36" in front of the washer/dryer and hallway width
2. I would probably move the toilet to the wall between the Laundry and Bath, if you have a minimum of 36" between the tub and wall. I would install blocking in the wall for future grab bars. since you'll have the walls opens installing blocking now for future grab bars saves you money in the long run. same for tub.
3. install at least 32" wide doors (36" width if possible) in the event someone were to need a wheel chair/walker in the future it would be cheaper to install wider doors now than in the future.

All doors in the house are at least 36". The hallway running in front of the washer and dryer is 36", we arent changing anything about the hallway except to sheetrock over the door to the bedroom/soon-to-be-bathroom. The blocking is a good idea, except we cant do that with the shower because its on an interior wall which is made of 1x3's. And there is no tub, just a stand-up shower because we are sick of trying to step over the side of the tub. Gets harder and harder the older we get.
And we cant put the toilet in that corner, because of supports. Under the trailer that corner has a steel support running beneath it and an anchor attached to it. Thankfully the shower is wide enough that it puts the drain between steel supports.
