Just wanted to upload a scan of some notes I made.
Basic floor plan idea that I was working on today.
- Kitchen with propane burner eyes and sink
- Bathroom with shower, sink, and toilet
- Two bedrooms on bottom floor with bunk-beds* and storage
- Loft with queen-bed* and built in storage/shelves along side
- TV entertainment center under stairs
- Vaulted ceilings in main living area, kitchen, and bathroom
- Approx: 350 sq/ft
*note: Bedding will not be actual mattress of standard size, but rather custom cut from 10″ thick memory foam being close to standard sizes. Also, need to address heating/cooling.
The following diagram is a rough sketch for a conceptual idea of a sub-structure. Not drawn to scale, angles are not correct. Only for demonstration purposes.
Idea: Outside frame made of 2″x12″ boards. On two opposite sides of the frame will be a “lip” made of 2″x4″ or 2″x6″ boards. I-Beams (pre-fabbed or made on site) will rest on the “lip” and be attached. Top of the I-Beams will be flush with the top of the frame. OSB board (or other sub-floor material) will be attached to both the frame and the I-Beam tops. This will serve as the base structure which will be attached to the foundation, and also have the walls built upon it. After completion of walls, final flooring surface will be applied to the sub-structure. Pending on the span, bracing may be needed under the I-Beams. Under 20′ spans may not need bracing. I-Beams are mostly held together and attached to the frame via liquid nails. Framing nails and hangers can also be utilized. Size of boards/thickness needs to be determined for needs.
Place in LV, NV that has mobile units for sale/rent. The thing about them is they can customize doors where you want them and they come in sizes up to 10′W x 40′L. The doors and locking mechanisms are also more secure than typical shipping containers.
I called Avemco and got a quick ballpark insurance quote.
