House extension concepts

We've received the first concepts for our proposed extension to our house. They're part way to what we were thinking of, but the designer hasn't got it quite right.

I've scanned one of the plans and placed it in Google Earth as a layer over the aerial photo of our house, so we could see how the extension would relate to our garden space and our neighbours. It immediately showed that the spot where I'd been thinking of putting our new shed is inappropriate.

I'm going back to the designer to get a modified concept. Our main concerns are the first floor - they're as fundamental as where to place the new floor in relation to our existing house (and the extension). However, I also like some of the ideas that our designer has suggested, so I think we can work something out.
