022305 SMALL House of the Week :)
« on: February 23, 2005, 09:48:37 AM »
Ok Ok, now I feel bad because I posted too many big houses.   ;-()

Here is a smaller house for you.  

2138 square feet (not including bonus closet over the garage)
This house sits next to a lake.
There is a basement, but not finished.

Enjoy.

Here's a question I've always wanted to ask an architect:  on the hall bathroom on the second floor, you have two doors into the bathroom.  What is the purpose of this?  Does it really feel that you have a semi-private bathroom?  Even if the third bedroom was a guest room, and not a sibling's room,  it just doesn't seem practical to me.  The second door just takes up valuable wall space and makes the bathroom seem smaller.  Do people really ask for this or is this something you assumed people want, or is this the prevailing wisdom?

Thanks.  

I do enjoy the houses...

I think there are two things people love about them.

1.  It is additional privacy, even if there is a hall from the door.  

2.  You do not have to walk out into the hallways looking like complete crapola to get to the bathroom, you have a nice access from the bedroom.  I guess that falls under the privacy thing again.

People always tell us they want the Jack and Jill and zoned bathrooms.  I like them.  What I do not like about them is sometimes they get too small.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I guess that is why people build houses, but anytime I take someone into a J&J bathroom like that, it turns people off.  You always have to keep the door into the bathroom closed. Plus, it really makes the bathroom seem small.  What could you do with that bathroom if you had only a hall door?  You could have a bigger sink and be more likely to get a linen closet out of the whole deal.

Oh well, to each their own.

Personally I like the bathroom door to be from the bedrooms.  I feel it makes it more personal.  Sorta like having a smaller version of a master bedroom right?
