With a loft like this, who needs the rest of the house?
Fabulous features abound in this small but cozy space. The corner fireplace is the focal point of the loft, offering a warm glow on a cool evening. A perfect conversation area around the fireplace is created with a couch and chair with ottoman.
Built-in cabinets can be used to house a television. Above the cabinets is a wood countertop that flows over to become the mantel of the fireplace. Note the interesting slide-out drawers that follow the angle of the fireplace. An L-shaped wood workstation creates plenty of work surface area.
The computer area is naturally lighted by a dormered window above. A vaulted ceiling follows the roof line.
Although this loft was built in a new home, it can be retrofit in existing homes that have unused attic space.
This home was designed by Mulfinger, Susanka, Mahady & Partners for the Life magazine Dream Home 1999. The entire house can be viewed on the Web site for Life magazine at http://pathfinder.com/Life/.
