Thoughts on ‘dream home’ floor plan

last year


I would love some thoughts on a floor plan I’ve been working on for some time.

Background: we have a narrow block of land (with exisiting house) in Brisbane. Our intention is to knock down and rebuild. There are ocean views across from the road, hence I’ve planned entertaining areas at the front of the house. The block/house is facing south, right is east, back is north and left is west facing.

Our plan is to have dual living. My parents would reside downstairs.

Is it worth seeing an architect? Or should I see a draftsman to do up plans and reduce costs?

Would appreciate any thoughts!

Many thanks,
