Design that I will use

I will use design 001. Although I will make changes to it, most of the design would remain the same. Although the storage room seems a little "bold" so I would use the working room from design 002 and move it to the current storage room in design 001. I would move the storage shelves around and I might put one in the current design room and one in the middle room. I would put a fire hose in the middle room. I would include 2 big sliding doors in between the working room and the current storage room. I'm using this design because the big windows would allow good air ventilation and it would allow a lot of natural light to come in.
