Help with Floor Plan

Extend the existing one.

Put a second level extension on.
or
Get a larger block that would be more suited.

At the very least, change that door into the downstairs powder/shower room so it swings the opposite way. You don’t want the first thing you see to be the toilet,…

200mm dead space between my boundary and neighbour boundary

Wow, 200mm of DEAD SPACE and you worried about neighbours utilising it. Pretty well sums up Australia in 2019

You said in your build thread that your tiler is one of the best tilers in all of Ballarat. Why would you want opinions from a forum when your tiler…

Hamptons inspired architect design with attached granny flat

Perfect example there of North facing benefits 🌝. Still baffling how so many don’t understand this concept.
Looking great, well done!
