If you want the full effect of high ceilings you should have your windows at a taller head height. Otherwise your ceilings won't have the same impact you are…

Maybe the requirements for internal walls are different since they're braced by the ceiling? I also haven't noticed 3 bricks being used above door frames on other sites, so I…

I think the void is nice. It brings natural light in to your hallway from upstairs and gives you space for a feature pendant light. It doesn't have to be…

Yes I saw that comment. I have heard that you need a minimum of 3c height of brickwork over an opening, but I don't know if it has to be…

The ground floor is slowly taking shape with most of the brickwork done. There's still a few internal walls left to do before the beams go in.

You could still have a void over the entry by simply taking it away from the rumpus?

Well done that's a good solution!
Might need some ventilation in the media room, but a highlight window facing the granny flat could do that.

I love the simplicity of your floor plan, especially the ground floor. It's a very functional space. Good luck with your build!
