Small House in 3D

                Small House in 3D

I've been obsessed with small houses for the longest time. I always enjoy trying to figure out how to maximize space. I came up with this two-story design based on some small house designs I saw on the internet. The blue spaces are 3m x 5m rooms. The pink floors are 1.7m x 2m bathrooms. The green floors are used as hallways and the kitchen / dining room space. The staircase is around 0.9m wide. The whole first floor is around 5m x 10m, with outside walls 0.15m thick it's around 5.3m x 10.3m. Each floor has a 3m ceiling.

If you are wondering if I intentionally kept the stairway orientation that way, yes I did. This is so you can place a coat rack or small table for mail right beside the sliding main door. And there's a window there too.

Maybe I should have taken up architecture in college. I do enjoy doing these things. I just don't know if this is going to be architecturally sound.
