I know you’re here for pictures, but knowing the lay of the land and what we call some of our rooms will be very helpful as you follow along on our journey.
Back here (the space not on the floorplan) is currently a chunk of asphalt. You can enter the firehouse through the kitchen, which is pretty closed off. It connects to the dining room, which is open to the living room. From here you have options, you can head downstairs to the basement (on the left of the floorplan), into the former firetruck garage which will henceforth be known as the studio, or up the stairs (top right on the floorplan) to the second floor). The studio has a door near the front (and a big garage door that needs some work) and what we’re calling a “mechanical room.”
When you head upstairs, you enter the upstairs living room. The Captain’s bedroom is the first bedroom and includes a small bathroom and the top of the fire pole. Further down the living room you can enter the community bathroom or head into a hall. The hall leads to a big bedroom (future workout room/guest room) and laundry room (on the left of the floorplan) and the fourth “bedroom” that doesn’t even have a window. Straight ahead is the master suite, which includes two closets and a full bathroom.
The basement, which is wide open save for some support columns, doesn’t have a floorplan yet because we didn’t take any measurements. Rest assured, we have plenty of plans for that space and we’ll fill you in as we go.
So that’s the layout. Got it? Great. Pop back later this week and I’ll show you around the first floor.
