#7 REVISED #5 SUBMITTAL by Jim81
Please delete my # 5 submittal. ADD ON 2 (revised) has been changed to enhance the patio area and to align my roof framing points. I also changed the cook out area. I will send marked up elevations from your plans when I hear from you and if you like this layout better than submittal # 1 for the ADD ON 1 version. Please advise.

#1 ADD ON REV-1 by Jim81
Hello, since I am dealing with a lot of unknowns such as set back conveniences, this is my interpolation of what you are asking for. If I am anywhere close I would like to work with you to accomplish your ultimate goal. I added a pool equipment room since you will need one and I located the pool along side of the addition so that it doesn't eat up all your back yard. I hope you like what I have shown and certain modifications can be made if need be. I think I gave you enough info to be able to make a decision on what you do or don't like about the addition. I added an entrance into the hall by the bath room to allow swimmers to be able to use the bath without tripping through the whole house. This is as simple as I can get considering what you have asked for. Because of the elevation I have in mind (gable facing to the rear) I didn't plan the patio to go all the way across the back of the house and use up what back yard you have left in my plan. The window in the bedroom above your existing kitchen will have to be relocated to the side of the house because of the addition.
Thank you for the opportunity and challenge to design something for you. Jim 81

#2 Preliminary idea for expansion by Arslan Qaiser
Hello, was having some trouble trying to understand the floor plans so i have attached a picture (no. 2) Room marked A is the kitchen right? Never the less i have attached ideas for how i think you are imagining the expansion to be like. I realize you want to maintain the rectangular footprint of the house and i think it is a good limitation. This way i can realize the true potential of the vertical plane of this space. Together with the pool and double height ceiling i think connecting it with the top floor can be something interesting? Let me know what you think.

#6 A 3d sketch of expansion design by Arslan Qaiser
Due to the roof being gabled on the left wall, the extra space for the kitchen seems to have rather low ceiling if we continue the roof on its existing plane. One idea which i found interesting was to have that kitchen area to be almost double height. This could be an interesting space to have an open kitchen dining.

Hello,
in the software section, you put AutoCAD (2014), does this means that I must do this using AutoCAD (2014) or I can use any program I prefer? if I can use what I prefer, which file types you need as a submission?

No picture submitted with your info. Need more info about the back porch request. Were you referring to a patio porch ? What is the need for it ?
