Updated Dimensions / New Designs!

Hi again everyone,

We’ve updated our floor plans based on the measurements we took this past week.  We were quite a bit off – not in total square footage, but in the length-to-width ratio.  (The house is narrower than we thought, but it also has an extra sliver on the right.)  So, here is the real lay of the land (Up is “East.”)  And yes, the stove IS still on the porch!

Original “As-Is” Floor Layout:

Ok, so now… let’s see what we came up with, saving the best for last.  Don’t mind the furniture on the lawn…:

DESIGN 1:


and now… the “winner” so far… “Design 2.”  You’ll notice the stairs to the attic (see photos), which I intend to be hinged and to double as a light fixture (when up) which folds down into a regular staircase / ladder like this…  We will hand swiveling lights between the rungs of staircase to make the staircase double as a light when the staircase is retracted towards the vaulated ceiling in the entryway.

Staircase Light

Lights hang between the rungs of the staircase to make the staircase serve as a light whenever the staircase is retracted towards the vaulted ceiling.
