Ok, so, there has been a lot of comment on Matt and Carisa’s floor plans and use of space. We’re all happily playing armchair designer/architects – which is all part of the fun of reality tv. But, now it’s time to walk our talk. With thanks to Tom & Lorenzo, our favorite GayBoys, we have closeup images of Matt and Carisa’s floor plans.
Here is a mockup I did of Matt’s plan. It helped me figure out the proportions to lay in the furniture. Note that some changes were made to the final blank plan after I made this one. But, it was suggested to me that I include it for reference. If I have time, I’ll do one for Carisa’s plan as well.
Based on these two floor plans and a lot of assumptions on my part and with the help of Eric3000 and Mumblesalot, I’ve cobbled together a basic floor plan. We know the lofts were 1,700 sq. ft. My plan below comes to about 1,665 sq. ft. I am using a 1/8″=1′ scale.
The following items cannot be changed: Structural columns, location of bathroom and kitchen, exterior walls and windows.
So, are you willing to take the Top Design Final Challenge?
If so, you can either click this image and print it out or I can mail a PDF to you. Just send me an email. Don’t forget, my scale is 1/8″=1′. So, make sure you enlarge your version to this scale or keep it in mind if you plan on putting in furniture.
Entries should be sent to me here. You can either scan and email it, of fax it, or use good old fashioned snail mail. If you wish to remain anon, that’s fine, just let me know.
I’ll post entries as I get them and eventually we’ll all have a vote on the winner.
Winners will receive a custom made-to-order pillow by yours truly!
