Positive notes; Your graphics and design suggestions were very nice. The images were quite impressive. We were able to get a lot of ideas from your proposed layout. Plumbing was mostly centrally located and the overall design seemed like it would be open if implemented. The windows drawn in the designs were very nice and practical for a basement (security). Design drawbacks; 1. We did not want to add an additional door. This is a brick masonry building and adding another door will be quite expensive. This was stated specifically on the wall. 2. With this design, effectively, anyone would have to go outside to do the laundry which could be an inconvenience. 3. More windows were added than necessary thus increasing cost (see above drawback).
good storage but the display is not that good
I really liked this design, but it had one major flaw. The counter top that cuts the room in half was something that I just could not get around. The pantry was a great idea. I liked the coffered ceilings and the brick on the exterior wall. If this design had incorporated a small island instead of the long counter top, it probably would have been a winning design.
Really great drawing and design. The master .More comments will follow.
