Behind the couch is a split staircase—with plenty of hidden storage built inside—that leads up to the kids' sleeping loft. The upper level also consists of a master loft, which includes a bed and a small work space.
In the dining area is a custom-built oak table that can be folded up and down in three different sections.
Just beyond the kitchen is a built-in "his and her" wardrobe with plenty of drawers and hanging space, followed by a bathroom that features a fully tiled bath and shower. The built-in bathroom sink and vanity have also been designed with plenty of storage space, and includes a Separett Villa compost toilet that is placed next to the large washer-dryer unit.
