Master bedroom location


Hi,

My husband and I are in the process of converting our garage into another room, we have left the roller door on and built a wall the other side to create a box room at the front of the house.

We have cut a hole into the existing wall from the lounge room to give the room an open feel.

My question now is, my husband wants to have it as our master bedroom but i am unsure how I feel about it coming off the lounge room. I just dont think it would look any good.

The lounge room was rather small before we opened it up and i think closing it back up with doors could give the whole house a smaller feeling.

I like the idea of all the bedrooms down one end of the house and living at ther other end but i'm unsure of which way to go and am looking for some other advice.

Thank You

How big are the windows in the room. Bedrooms have all kinds of restrictions. You more than likely will have to upgrade your smoke alarms if they are not and meet electrical codes related to arc fault breakers.

It sounds like your question boils down to a matter of opinion.

Since this was a garage, have you considered traffic noise?
One reason bedrooms are often at the back of the house is because it's usually quieter back there.

BTW, where are you located? Just curious.

....and....are you pulling permits?

If you do the conversion without permits....and the city finds out....it getst expensive.....
