Aloha meet me again, the wifey.
Sorry to say, I decided to discontinue the project#2 because I’m pregnant now (26 weeks) and it does affect our design. We should prepare the larger bedroom for parent and baby.
In this design, there’re some changes made. The overall changes can be seen below design :
PS. i’ve just known how to make the design has color like above 😀 by editing its preferences.
For bedroom, since we think that the baby will stay with us until toddler, then I extend the bedroom from its original (3m x 2,5m) to be 4m x 4m, on the same position -on the front of the house. I’ve placed some furnitures in the room. It seems fit for bed, wardrobe, crib and dresser and also the direct access to the toilet.
Bed, crib and dresser are on the same ‘room’. The wardrobe behind the bed has function as room separator between the bed+crib area with the walk-in-closet and the toilet. On bed+crib area has large-triple-window with blind for air circulation from sideyard garden. Also for baby sun-bathing :). I’ve put the baby dresser in front of the crib for larger space to do diaper changing, bathe the baby etc.
The bed has the bedside table, as requested by the hubby, since he doesn’t like the bed is place right beside the wall without any left space. Darling, I’ve considerated your request. Better you agree with this design, ahahahaha.
the walk-in-closet area itself is connected to the toilet. So when the we finish take a bath, we will enter the wal-in-closet. The wardrobe has sliding door to save the space for people mobilization. The mobilization area is about 1m. This area also has the frosted-glass-window with blind to control the sideyard garden.
The door to access the toilet is also the sliding door, it’s about 15-20 cm above the floor to avoid the water comes from toilet while we have activity in the toilet.
THE LIVING ROOM & FAMILY ROOM
The living room to welcome the guest is on its original position and its shares with TV room. The furniture in this room is so simple, just bench with pillows with higher part on the corner side as table. The-table-higher-part is also can be storage for snack for the coming guests. The position of door & window are still in their original position without any changes.
The living room and the family room is divided by a shelf. Since the limited space, the family room is using the carpet. The TV and its accessories are ‘floating’ on the wall. Our wedding picture will be placed above the TV 🙂
KITCHEN, SERVICE AREA AND PRAYING AREA
The kitchen, service area and the praying room (mushola) are placed on back. The kitchen has L formed with bar table for dine. It has access to the praying area and service area. The mushola is borderless connected with the service area with has the wet area. The mushola is sufficient for 2 persons or when it’s not use can be used as ‘additional space’ for guess room. Just put a single bed to lay down.
The praying area is also can be the additional space for cooking activity if there’s some family gathering.
I want the washing and ironing activity are done in this area, so I will not see the crowded of the un-ironed clothes spreading everywhere. This special area will keep the home tidy and neat :). The service area is not only have the open space above the wet area, but also it has small water tank -completed with faucet, to save the rain for rain harvesting purpose. I plan to filter the rain water using the traditional ways before it’s saved on the water tank. The filtered-rain-water will be used for soaking the dirty napkin or to mop the floor.
The wet area in this service area also has the water installation for clean water for wudhu.
The service area is separated from the family room by a sliding door. The sliding door also keeps the privacy if the praying area turns to be the additional guest room.
The toilet is on the original position but it’s extend 1m to sideyard to adapt the bedroom extension. The toilet extension is for AC compressor, gas and rain-water-tank storage for toilet needs.
There’s a terrace in front of the living room and little path to access the carport.
the sideyard has little path to access the house from sideyard. The gazebo and the bench for BBQ are provided for family gathering.
We’re so exciting wait the baby ^^
