Introducing the Nolan 45 by Metricon

22 11 2011

The new home we have selected for our knockdown and rebuild project is the Nolan 45 by Metricon. We have been looking at display homes on and off for the last four or five years and are now finally taking the plunge to build our dream home. We always seemed to be drawn to homes which had the same sort of layout that the Nolan offers and so when we came across the floor plan for the Nolan it seemed to tick all the right boxes give or take a few minor changes.

Here are the floor plans for the house with some of the design alterations we have made to suit our needs.  We have come across several other building blogs which have provided some of the inspirations for our design alterations.

The changes include –

Ground Floor

  • Relocate linen cupboard and wall to encompass toilet and vanity in one room with window on either side of the vanity.
  • Increased garage width by 600mm.
  • Added single rear roller door to rear of garage.
  • Internal Cavity Sliding Door to Study (but contemplating stacker door).
  • Internal Cavity Sliding Door to WIP.
  • Microwave tower (didn’t like the original location where you had to bend down below the bench to access).
  • Window Splash-back to stove area.
  • Upgraded PROMO timber stacker door to bi-fold doors from dining to alfresco area.
  • Increased alfresco area by adding option of grand alfresco with ceiling fan.

First Floor

  • Added alcove to WIR to master bedroom.
  • Ensuite swapped toilet and shower position.  Increased size of ensuite and gained larger shower.
  • Closed off doors from bathroom to Bed 3 and 4.
  • Relocate bath, shower and added double vanity to bathroom.

Layout looks great, and your little tweaks certainly help to meet your needs. Bummed I was bumped off the job!
