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.

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.

Thank you so much for your reply on the paint colours. I forgot to ask for the trim colour ! Could you please - Trim colour please !

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.
