Houses are therapy

So it turns out I can’t actually go very long without getting bitten by the bug of floorplanning again.


I was recently shown a really nice house for rent on Rightmove, and I thought it was so nice that I was inspired to, once again, do my own adaptation of it. This is definitely not a house we’d be able to build because it would be far too expensive and it would need a bigger plot of land to sit on. Unless there were other couples in most of the other bedrooms and they were all part of a mortgage for this, it just wouldn’t be doable.

This is the original plan from Rightmove, which doesn’t actually do the individual rooms justice because you can’t see them.

My version of downstairs, featuring my usual trademark of increased floor space.
5 bed upstairs
My version of upstairs, with an added den area, which fits because bedroom 4 isn’t a dormer.

It seemed to think the bedroom carpet was attached to the hall carpet and so I couldn’t make it a different colour.

I know exactly where I’d put Joop’s tank.

I assume that cabinet wouldn’t end up literally put over the window.

I love that ottoman.

House colours
Beautiful colours.


Obviously I still love our actual plan, although I do sometimes worry if there’s enough space with that one. I realised the guest space created by an accordion wall, probably would actually have to be a full-time bedroom, especially if we want more than one kid. I dunno. But at least that plan actually seems buildable.


I feel better for having made this although, once again, I don’t know to what end I did it.
