Question

Where do I look on The Chatroom?


I have been building out a space adding a master bath with closet and using a previously wasted back room space. however in the process I have made an open concept in an L shape.

Where would I look on the forum for kitchen/house building layout or does anyone have any other resources I can check out?

Thanks again.

Checkout Pintrest. Or just google it. There are many such sites.

Just make sure that you have point loads supported correctly and any electrical/plumbing installed to code.

Point loads I'm not sure I understand
(All the structural load bearing walls where done last year replace with beam spanning house.)

Electrical - I do it for a living
Plumbing - I have a buddy that does it for a living.

Ktown, I have googled it but I'm not getting many ideas...

Point loads, to my understanding, are where the loads from the roof down through any stories, are passed through to the basement. That is the reason why you replace a load bearing wall with a beam calculated to carry the weight of not only the points where it connects with the basement to the roof, but any point along the beam that may have held a point load from the basement to the roof.

Take a look at an exterior window or door's rough opening. Normally you just have 2x construction. When you add in a window, you are removing structure (2x) so you need to replace the structure with something else. A header like a double 2x8 or 2x10. Then you add king studs to the outside of the header, and jack studs to support the header. The king and jack studs help transfer the load from the upper floors/roof down to the foundation.

I hope that helps.

As for the rest of it, what EXACTLY are you searching for?

I see.. Yeah all the point loads are taken care of.

I am looking for information on how to build out my kitchen /dinning room.

The space is 12 across by 15ft long i will have to get pics.

I just don't seem to have the imagination to bang this out.

Re: Where do I look on The Chatroom?


Here is a rough sketch of the space i want to up my kitchen and dinning room. I was thinking about the dinning table by the rear french doors.

The pencil is what I have set up temporarily in the kitchen.

Google "narrow house plans" and click on "images" button. That will get you closer to corridor style kitchens.

With the french door, you need to keep the circulation space through to it. It looks like your dining area is set up between the master closet and the hallway opening.

A strip kitchen across from the master-bath on the far wall.

Googling "galley kitchen" might help too.
