What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Tour Sarah Susanka's Newest Right-Sized House
Unlike many houses that have the bedroom closets built at the interior walls, the closets in this child's bedroom flank the window so a built-in window seat can be incorporated into the room.
