Lofty Living

http://www.houzz.com/houzzTvWidget/62333729/4815380783001

Back in the 20th century, when DH and I decided to cohabit, we went looking for a condo to buy.  This was in the halcyon days when two people making not much money could afford to buy in this city.  **sigh** Nostalgia.

We looked at a lot of places that looked exactly the same, and at one loft.  It was in a new build, in a neighbourhood of single family homes, so it wasn’t the “Downtown/Gastown/Yaletown” experience you would expect with loft living, and it never made the top ten of our favourites. But it also had one glaring problem.  It was basically one large room with a bathroom.  You can put that loft bedroom anywhere you want, but it’s still in the same room as the living room.

DH fell in love with the idea, and said that if he was NOT moving in with someone, he would buy it in a snap.  A spirited discussion ensued.

But one couple has solved the “one big room” problem (and in a lot less space than we were offered).  Once again, design trumps size. Check out the linked video from Houzz to see how clever they’ve been.

They’ve placed the office where the night-owl works directly below the loft bed.  With his headphones on he can work into wee hours without disturbing her sleep.  That work space also changes into a guest room AND a dining area.

Plus they’ve worked in a custom library ladder (another of DH’s favourite things).
