Sure. Bedroom 4 is technically the media room, but it can be counted as a bedroom as it has a closet and the windows are sufficiently large. That has been converted to my office/meditation room; it’s quite spacious. My dream was to have a big, solid, stately, wooden desk. Finally, I have it! My beauty took a couple of scratches on the way up the stairs, but it was a miracle that the store guys were able to get it done. Our staircase has a sharp turn. They measured it first; it was a precise fit.
Talk about a nail biter. I couldn’t bear to watch. There was a distinct possibility that I would have either no desk or a hole in the wall. Hey, holes can be patched. I want my desk!
I had to sign an additional waiver.
Somehow, two guys made it happen. I gave them cookies and money. I’m pretty sure some kind of dematerialization and rematerialization of molecules was involved.
We have to remain here for life.
Back to your actual question. The other BR is set up as a guest room. It’s very close to the second upstairs bathroom, which is nice. We commandeered the closest for linen storage and dh’s clothes.
The other BR, which is the smallest, is dh’s office/clutter collecting facility. We have an agreement. Since I am severely clutter phobic and Dh is clutter blind, he has a dedicated clutter space. It’s his for paper strewing, on condition that he keep the door shut. It works pretty well. I just stay the eff out of there. If I have to go in, I jump back out as fast as I can. It’s a reflex. I am just repelled by clutter.
It should be noted that Dh never has food trash or anything truly disgusting in there. He also stashes some clothes in the office closet.
Thus, each BR is put to very good use for us; something we could not do with kids. And they require a lot of gear. I would be in a chronic state of clutter phobic reaction.
Nope, the basement can’t be counted as square footage; only above ground space is considered legal living space. We love the walkout, though. It has double French doors straight into the yard, which is so great. It was a big selling point for us.
