I do love older homes, but boy they can be trying.
See those stairs at the back of the dining room? They lead up to the master bedroom. How am I supposed to get anything up those? They're enclosed, steep, barely over a foot and a half wide, in a corner, and take a sharp turn right at the bottom. I know that people/things were smaller in the 40's, but c'mon.
I've been toying with the idea of building a fauxdenza to go along that wall facing the end of the bed (the one with the pitched ceiling). The Brick House did a really good write-up on what seems like a fairly simple design, so I might give it a try. What do you all think? Fauxdenza or flat-pack?
