*NR – Not Recommended
NR1 – Such tight space with less depth for Wash Area is not recommended, as it is not comfortable for working.
NR2 – Toilet on First floor will be above kitchen/Dining. This create two problems :
- Because of sunken slab of toilet it will reduce height of kitchen.
- There can always be problem of leakage creating nuisance in kitchen.

NR5 – No cross ventilation is provided in this room. Though possible.
NR6 – Open seating Area in Southwest corner is not recommended as it would be very hot during most of the day time.
- Provision of solar shading device is recommended or light roof shelter to be provided.
NR7 – No space for T.V. unit in family sitting area.
NR8 – Large passage is a sign of wastage of area.
