So a while back I said I would upload one of my old house designing projects for you guys. Well that time has arrived and put everything in a pdf for easy access without having to worry about compatibility issues with file formats. The language is in Afrikaans if you wish to translate, but everything quite straight forward and you would be able recognise all the views and sectional views of the hous.
Design a granny flat for your wheelchair disabled grandma in your backyard. The house should follow local style (Cape Dutch gable houses, go Google it to get an idea) and must be wheelchair friendly and accessible according to the SANS#someNumber ( a local document stipulating the legalities of disabled houses and architecture rules).
Now of course I'm not going to design some old house we have seen millions of times, why not have a modern take on the Cape Dutch Gable style houses. So I did and now granny is living in style. The house fully legal as far everything except the foundation and structural integrity, I'm not an engineer/architect. The house is approximately 500 square meters and is a double story house with an elevator going right up to the main bedroom. The bathroom was specifically designed for a wheelchair disabled person, from shower to bath. The top floor is a single bedroom (80 square meters) with an balcony and garden. On the first floor you will find the rest that is usually in a home.
The end goal here wasn't to design a cost effective house, but rather the best environment for your wheelchair disabled grandma. All doors slide into the wall to free up some space, all internal walls are either wood or glass. The kitchen is also designed around a wheelchair to have maximum space and not to compromise cooking abilities.
Feel free to learn from this and to see what goes where and the general layout of a floor plan. Some of the naming on the floorplans are not correctly aligned, please just try and look past that.
