As promised, here is 1/2 floor and the 1st floor.
The 1st floor is where you would enter from the garage or the alley on the eastside of the house. The garage is big enough for 2 cars (we only have one) and it has an actual entry way. We’ve (Catherine) have always wanted one of those. From the entry, you can either head upstairs to the Main Floor or take a right into the Craft Room. Yes, Craft Room. It’s actually suppose to be a studio apartment we can rent out, but right now we don’t have the funds to finish it that way. We (Catherine again) hope that it never has to be rented out and we can leave it as is. Look at all the daylight (weather permitting) it will get!
As you head downstairs from floor one, you hit the landing where there is an entrance from the “street side” of the house. We say, “street side” because it’s actually quite a hike up from the street to get to this entrance. We don’t imagine many people will use it.
Downstairs past the entrance landing leads you right into the Music Room/Band Practice Space. Yes, we (both of us actually) are super excited about this room. All the large musical instruments final have a place to live! This space is actually a daylight basement. It’s got some light, but not a lot. It could be part of the studio 1 rental, but both of us really, REALLY(!!) hope it never comes to that. We’re investing in soundproofing insulation to help with the noise, er, music.
Each of us to spread our hobbies out. He gets to fill his space with instruments and she gets to leave her sewing machine out permanently and possibly incorporate pinks, purples or teals into the decor.
