Hi Houzz Community
I need your advice on our floor plan. This will be our forever house for our family of 3 so I am unsure about a few things. Firstly, I worry about the kitchen orientated towards the north instead of having the dining and family rooms on the northern aspect since the terrace will be cutting off the light once built. I feel like the common area and laundry and scullery needs a rethink because the floorplan isn't fully utilizing the northern aspect.
We currently live in a house that needs lights on during the daytime, which I hate! Natural lighting for the whole house, especially common areas is very important to me and we also want to be a low-energy and sustainable household.
I like the bedrooms as it is, on the south-side of the block and also because we have a walkway on the left-side of the block, so privacy and security is important.
The laundry room should be away from the bedrooms.
Advice or suggestions are welcomed, thanks!!
