Hey! I by chance ghosted you guys final week. Tuesday is my birthday, and we’ve got some plans for it, after which I plan different enjoyable issues all through the week. So I gave up on the concept of doing homework and have the progress to share with you. However I get again to work within the toilet on Saturdays and Sundays, so there’s progress. However at this time was my assembly with a panorama designer, and I used to be actually excited to show in my jumbled concepts and see how he put them collectively and made sense of them.
I used to be working within the toilet yesterday, and round 7:30 p.m., I freaked out somewhat. I spotted I had nothing on paper (or on-line) to point out panorama designers the long run plans we had for a land associated house. And I haven’t got it as a result of I do not know that info myself. I imply, I’ve a basic thought, however nothing actually concrete. However the very last thing I need is for somebody to provide me landscaping concepts primarily based on what the again of our home and our vacant lot seems like now that we’ve got so many adjustments deliberate.
That is what our home seems like now…
However the small room outdoors the grasp toilet was the unique grasp toilet, and was now fully enclosed. There is no option to entry it from inside the home, however it’ll keep there till we construct the addition. After which that vast sunroom too can be torn down.
As soon as that is eliminated, we’ll be including a brand new main bedroom, laundry room, and household/media room. So the ground plan will ultimately seem like this…
So I wished to get an thought of the brand new structure by way of lot dimension, together with issues I did not actually perceive, like decks. And since we maintain the carport as a carport, I must resolve the place I wish to ultimately construct my workshop. (Be aware: There’s all the time been confusion about my studio vs. my workshop. The studio is the place I’ve my house workplace space, and the place I work on tasks like stitching, artwork, and so on. The workshop is the place my woodworking instruments will go — saws, sanders. , and so on. Something that produces sawdust and dust shall be put within the workshop.)
After taking some very tough measurements of our plot of land (which is not straightforward to do with a 20-foot tape measure over an acre of land), I pulled out some graph paper and began drawing. That is what I received…
The place the again of our home at the moment has many nooks and crannies, the ultimate structure shall be squared on the again. After which from the again of the home, I wished a big deck accessible from French doorways in the main bedroom in addition to French doorways within the household/media room.
The preliminary driveway is kind of brief, and is only a straight line from the highway to the entrance of the studio, which was initially a storage. So the brand new driveway (which I am certain shall be gravel) ought to curve to the facet of the home, no pecan tree sitting on the appropriate (and I hope it stays as a result of it nonetheless produces lots of candlenut), to the facet of the home, to the carport, and even additional to the workshop. Now you perceive why spend some huge cash on concrete for all that.
So far as restore retailers go, I would like about 20′ x 30′. I would just like the again dealing with driveway and facet railing to have a storage door on high so I can simply load massive objects like sheets filled with plywood/MDF into the workshop from the truck. After which I wished a facet door that was straight from the French backdoor within the studio for straightforward entry to it. After which I need the “entrance” of the workshop to face the yard with a really cute entrance door, possibly somewhat patio, home windows, and so on. I wished it to seem like somewhat hut sitting there dealing with in in the direction of the open space of the yard.
After which you possibly can see the trail that goes round the entire place. I nonetheless have my listening to about it. I can think about flower beds, sitting areas, and so on., alongside these paths.
So hopefully this may present a place to begin for the panorama designer, and he may help me fill in the remaining. And naturally, he might inform me what sorts of crops I ought to develop all through, as a result of that is the place I actually received misplaced. I do not know crops in any respect, and I do not know what is going to develop the place. I really want skilled assist.
