The one closest to the kitchen goes to the bathroom, the other door is a closet.

I am not sure who the guy is who answered above (looks like a new form of marketing), but the floors are french white oak, not hickory / pecan.

The ladder goes up to a sleeping loft, the downstairs is a living room.

It's all custom, I plotted a full scale template from AutoCAD and had the contractor build it from that.

Could you let us know how high it is from floor of loft area to ceiling of loft area and what the dimensions and roof pitch of the building is. Love the look! If you have a picture of the loft area would love to see it!

How do you like the ladder vs stairs? We are trying to decide if we should make living room larger and put in ladder rather than stairs.

Hello - There are sleepers with rigid insulation set in above the ceiling beams and decking, so no problem with connections.

Loft ladder to code - I have been trying to figure out the code for loft space with respect to stairs vs ladders. Everything I've seen seems to indicate that if the space is "inhabitable"(coded by size ) then it must have stairs not ladder. How do you get around this??

I love the soft color of the vertical board walls -- can you please share the paint color? - You have made this little cottage so light, airy and cheery inside!
I have been STR-UGGLING trying to find a softer color to complement our existing navy drapes,
white woodwork and mixed woods. So I would really, really appreciate any info you can provide on this wall color! Thanks so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: 10 Tiny Homes That Live Large
The Houzz: Spruce Street CottageBy: Koch Architects, Joanne KochTip: Maximize loft space.This cottage makes excellent use of space with a loft reached by a ladder and with built-in cupboards, a sink and closets below.
Samantha Schoech added this to Loft Beds Give Rooms a Lift
A backyard guest cottage. Why just give them a bed and bath when you can put the bedroom in the rafters and give them a kitchen too?
Tongue and groove walls and ceilings of 1-by-6 painted pine join with exposed beams in this bright, architecturally rich guest cottage.
Apartment 46 for the Home added this to So You're Moving In Together: 3 Things to Do First
2. Find a place you’re willing to pay for. You might yearn for a glass box in the sky, while your partner envisions a cozy brick studio. Sometimes the budget is the great equalizer, because what's doable can bring you down to earth. Since your shared space will be one you'll come home to, it’s important to discuss must-haves and nice-to-haves and to know the difference. Search for places that rank high on what you really need. A couple I know shares a studio apartment in a great San Francisco location with their three dogs and a turtle. It’s a small space (350 square feet), but they are happy and thriving. Location, light and price were their only must-haves. Because they knew up front what they were willing to compromise on, they snagged an affordable apartment in a neighborhood they loved and made it work. It’s hard to budge on things you really like, but compromise is key when you’re setting up house with another human being. Be flexible.
