The plans look kewl nothing like having a hotrod in your office . Now you will have to find the proper front clip off of the proper classic to turn into a desk for your office .

I would look into adding a loft over half the building break up the visual lines and to add 50% more space, even if it's only for storage.

+1 Not sure about half the building but at least above the kitchen/bathroom/
storage area.

Thats exactly what we've done. The bathroom and storage areas both have ceilings with loft area above.

You're going to love that open floor plan. The thing I miss most about my original office (I work from home) is being in the same room with my '58 F-100. Having your hot rod within sight will be great. I would be concerned about dust and dirt in the library, though. You may find you need to wall that off.

Looks like a good layout! I like the idea of adding on in stages.

Looks great. The only thing I would change would be to shove #4 into #6

Hi - Love the ideas on this building - I hope it's Ok but I would like to comment.

The social Area and the library could be combined, sitting in the centre, and bookcases around - thinking a sort of 'gentleman's club' feel!

Also - this combined area would be better placed IMHO in the area you have marked as 'Main work Area'. this is then right next to the Kitchen.

Move the tanks and compressors from the top wall and put them inside the storage area.

Leave Shipping/ recieving where it is.

This than frees the centre and upper area completely for hot rod parking, working etc.

Just a suggestion - feel free to disregard of course!!

My only concern would be people stopping by whenever they want. It's cool when you're at the office, but when you're watching Dora with the kiddos, it gets old fast. Looking forward to the progress. I really dig the plans so far.
