  • Loft Idea

    April 14th, 2017
    house, ideas
    Currently when we have a guest spend the night we have a fold-out couch available in the living room. It's a good one so it's reasonably comfortable, but it's kind of in the middle of things. This means you can't really go to sleep while others are still up, or stay asleep after others wake up, you don't have much privacy, the bed needs to be folded away during the day, and you can't leave your stuff out. So I've been thinking about making a loft:

    Our house has some "low eave" space, where the angled roof comes down too low for a normal-height roof. One one side of the house it's set up as storage, but on this side it's entirely closed off:

    I could open up the end, insulate it, put in a floor, walls, mattress, lighting, ventilation, and ladder, and make it available as a sleeping space. It would be a lot like a capsule hotel, though with a bunk-bed height ladder.

    Now, if I were visiting someone I would much prefer to sleep in a space like this than in the living room, but I wanted to check to make sure I'm not being weird here? Do other people also value quiet, isolation, and darkness, more than space and ease of exit? People of course could sleep in either place, so it's fine if some people would prefer one vs the other, but if no one aside from me would be interested in sleeping in a loft then I probably shouldn't build one.

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
