  • Architects?

    Is anyone on here an acrhitect or a AE? My uncle is building on his Cumberland lot and since the county he is building in has no structural codes or inspections there are some questions that come up.

    Anyone?

          Well he is building a house with attic trusses and using that as part of the living space. I have some prints that I could email as a PDF, I don't want to post them on line. We have some beam size questions along with need some advice for the best way to approach some things.

                    Nate, I got your email. Ill take a look, but all the builders up here don't even try to guess the dos and don'ts to trusses because everything here has to be approved by an engineer before being ordered through the lumber yard. You could probably hit the local Lowe's and talk to one of the contract sales guys and they usually give that info out for free...

                    As far as the design, I would make the bath with the washer and dryer deeper into the hall space. if anyone plans to do laundry have to close the bath door to get to the washer will drive the women in the family insane after about three loads...

                    your plant shelves in the great room will cut the light from the upper windows, I would delete them all together...

                    If you want, I could draw up a kitchen plan for you with an island to gather around at...

                      I think he wants to keep the kitchen open for now to have a large 10' table or so.

                      I was thinking a island with a bar height for 3-4 people would be nice to gather around.

                      I do actually need to figure out how to do an island at our house. We have an open kitchen and no counter space. So it can double as storage and hang out area.

                        All I know is whenever we have people over you can't pry them away from around the kitchen island. Make it as large as practical.

                          Hey Nate,
                          Grab a roll of Painters tape and layout a 24" Deep by 60" length island on your kitchen floor. Give yourself at least 3 ft from the refrigerator ( usually 3 1/2) then you and your wife can get a better sense of size for the room. Just remember your standard appliances are usually 30" wide so you need to be able to pull out the range or dishwasher from their spots once the island is mounted in place.

                            Yeah we leave a 8ft folding table up in the kitchen to act as the island. I really want to have a normal height counter and stepped up to the bar height. I am trying to figure out how to do all of this. Do I need a knee wall on the back of the counter height portion to support the bar height and use some brackets to support it?

                            I want electrical in the island for hosting and want not. I don't think water is nessecary. I was hoping for about 20 inches of counter and 18inches for the bar height. I don't think they make stock cabinets that short? We want to buy some unstained ones and match them to the current ones and then do storage for larger items in it, George Foreman, waffle maker, etc.

                              Actually they vanity cabinets that are 18" and 21" deep which would get what you want. Yes build a knee wall and skin it to match the cabinets.
