Insulated space over uninsulated space - Hi, I love all your work in your Lucia's Little Houses portfolio. You have a nice way of working with light. Many of the houses in that portfolio have screened in porches under upstairs bedrooms. How do you insulate to insure a warm floor and no drafts above the open space? Since a lot of your houses seem to be built in the NorthEast, you must have a good way of dealing with it. I'm in Ontario, Canada.

We use closed cell spray foam, so that makes it pretty easy to insulate the floor of spaces like this. Air sealing is important, and the spray foam takes care of this quite well. If you're looking at other types of insulation, here is a great article from Fine Homebuilding: http://www.finehomebuilding.com/design/departments/energy-smart-details/how-to-insulate-a-cold-floor.aspx

Sharon- the porch here is just screened in. The house is on the coast of Maine. We don't see many sleeping porches here, but almost all of the houses we design have screened in porches because of the mosquitos and blackfly in the summer.

The loft is 17'x8'. You can see the floor plan (and download the full portfolio of Lucia's Little Houses for free!) here: http://knightarchitect.com/lucias-little-houses/20-getting-on-the-land/

Loft ladder - We are converting our attic into a loft, but have been told we can't do a ladder because it doesn't meet code. Must be a ladder. How do get around this?

Unfortunately, you may not be able to get around it. Where this house was built there were no code restrictions that prohibited this loft ladder. Your best bet it to talk to builders in your area and see if they have ever built something that satisfies the code in your area.

I can't find the trim color in the project notes. However- I would use Ben Moore Super White in an Alkyd formulation (there is a water based and a oil based formula).

I could't really say if it would work or not. I suggest contacting a local contractor who could guide you. There are structural considerations as well as design/aesthetic considerations that would need to be worked out in person. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: Where to Put Your Overnight Guests
Does your ceiling height permit a sleeping loft? This is such a great way to provide for guests without taking up precious square footage on the floor. When you add a loft, be sure to include multiple electrical outlets for all the tech needs, like charging cell phones and tablets. If your guests happen to be grandchildren, you may need exceptionally great treats or activities to lure them down from a loft.
