Q:Where would the mechanical room (water heater and furnace) be?Is there a plumbing plan to go with the plans ? Where would either a gas fireplace or pipe chasing for a wood/pellet stove be best located in the family room. Thinking of wanting to secure upper floor from second floor so could a secure door be installed at the top of the stairway entering the kithchen. Could an 8 foot wide deck be extended from the plan deck around the side of the structure on the upstairs bedroom side of the reverse plan to about the length of the bedroom? Thinking for this plan for a high snowfall area requiring 150 lbs/ft2 snowloading. Does this plan meet that criteria? Finally what is the designed pitch of the roof and recommended crossbeam material for the three main crossbeams?
A:There is ample room in the garage for mechanical and water heater.

Q:Can the snow load be increased to 100 lbs sq ft? Is that simply a matter of increasing the size of the rafters and decreasing the spacing between them? And maybe increasing the size of the walls where the beams go to distribute the weight?
A:You can go to 100lbs by increasing the rafter size. The wall size should not need to change, but you may need to resize some window headers. Your local lumberyard can help with that.
