Susan's Carriage Loft
What I Love About My Home
There are so many things I love about my home: the light, the cathedral ceilings, the open floor plan, the quiet neighborhood. My house is one side of a duplex, in a wooded condo community comprised of many different sized homes, from 4-bedroom single-family houses to the small âcarriage lofts,â which is what my place is called. My unit is situated in such a way that I have a lovely sense of privacy. Bettie (the cat) can go in and out through her pet door as she pleases. I have a small deck, a garage (with closets) and a storage shed. I was able to arrange the space into distinct functional areas: kitchen, dining, work, and living areas are all downstairs. The bedroom and bath are upstairs in the loft.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
I would love to have a dedicated painting and sewing studio where I can make a creative mess and leave it. Iâve considered giving over the living area to painting, but I canât bring my self to give it up. I do have a nice work space, itâs just a little cramped. Projects frequently take over the dining table and every work surface. Iâm sometimes torn between the pleasure of a creative mess and the serenity of an orderly and beautiful home.
