This is a little odd.

The chase in the master bathroom, between the commode closet and the master, if that isn't used for mechanicals, have a door(s) put on it for a linen closet.

Not sure what you have the room by the pantry designated for, but I would re-work that area. Move the pantry to the outside wall and make it a bit bigger, push the door to the shop towards the center of the building a little, then put the wash room right next to the master closet, with a door to the master closet. The wife will be FOREVER thankful for having that easy access! This would also free up room for a utility sink, or storage for house hold chemicals.

I agree with above. Flip the master to closet door into the bathroom. I'd actually just flip the bathroom and the closet. Having plumbing on the exterior wall isnt usually the best idea. If you keep it that way, make sure you insulate well between the plumbing and the exterior wall skin. Here is an example:


Id recommending watching a bunch of his videos to get up to date on good building technique and building science. Lots of stuff you can do at this stage that is very hard to go back and fix.

I saw a similar video about doing the rigid foam with the spray foam, I am going to do that in my shop.

After watching that video, a few things. Not related to his method though. If any of you plan to under take this, great stuff now makes a pistol type spray gun, invest in one it will save you a TON of time. Also keep a can of acetone on hand. Acetone will clean up foam that has NOT set. You WILL get it on you, and your clothes, at some point if you do a good bit of spray foaming. I guarantee that! I use it regularly to do spray foam touch ups for inspections or to hit things inspectors miss. I get that shit on me at least once a week!

It's a lot easier to find acetone around a job site than it is gas!

I had a baja bug that had great stuff around where the engine cage went into the firewall, and a fuel hose developed a small pin hole, that squirted right at the great stuff. It melted, and it got louder inside the car, so I stopped to check it out. Lucky I stopped when i did, it could have been lots worse.

Ever consider another garage door(s) on the back of the shop? Sometimes it's nice to be able to drive through, and the extra door helps a lot with more airflow and natural light.

Here is a better set up of the floorplan, nothing is set in stone except plumbing.

I would definitely go bigger with the pantry. Even if it meant scaling down to one door. A pocket door would serve that location well.

After all the framing was done we wrapped our house in zip board, then attached the metal to it. Since it was sprayed foamed it will me a ton easier to replace the panels in the future and it adds a layer or sound deadner, more structure etc.

Love a good SHOUSE.

It definitely saves money compared to doing s stick built home that size and a nice separate shop equivalent to what you're getting on this build. That yote fox is going to have s nice home
