The not-so blank slate

2842471864_374390a2ce_o_2The house we bought is a nondescript monopoly-style house built in the 50s and moved to its current Queen Anne location in the 80’s. It was placed on a new foundation with a full height (8′-0″) basement.
The basement consists of a 1 bedroom Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), Laundry room, workshop, mechanical room, and some creepy windowless dungeon-type room off the bedroom.

The main floor has a small kitchen, living room, tiny dining room, and 3 bedrooms with one shared bath.

    Do you think you and Lorna will have children? If so, how will that impact the design of your home?

    I was checking out the cool media room staircase and it looks awesome, but I’d be pretty freaked out about my kid toppling off the thing. Which got me to wondering.

    Hi Rochelle, yes we do plan on having a kid someday but we will likely have moved out of this house before the kid starts running around. This is a fun project for Henry and me, since the whole design process is his passion. Someday in a few years, we hope to settle into our real “home”, but in the meantime, I just want Henry to have the opportunity to design and build whatever he wants.
