Here’s an updated idea of what I’m trying to achieve with the build. The plan was done using the Floorplans app, which is fantastic for the purpose. If you’re thinking of building anything similar, up to and including a house, I’d recommend buying Floorplans.
The area in the top right is the raised floor area for the bar. The right bottom is the gym area with the lifting platform in place. On the left of the plan is the workshop area, with a bunch of bench space at the top, and shelving down the bottom. The goal is to have a small office space on the right of the workshop area, to have as an alternate study for when the kids are going berserk in the house.
Car access will be through the left-side garage door. I’ve got an ambitious car project in the pipeline, and as soon as I can build the workshop and clear some space, I’ll get it in. More on that one later, but first things first.
Cheers guys, dan.
