    Clean lines and I LOVE how the steps/ladder are off to one side and secured at the base. Love it!!

    Nice large loft, love the “stationary” ladder. The kitchen is more than adequate, large in fact, though a larger fridge would not be a waste of counter space for my money! What I could see of the bathroom looks great. But where’s the actual living space? There’s barely room for a seat in that tiny corner! And zero closet space or storage that I could find.

    It looks very well-built, but as a restaurant person, I could not live with feet going up and down that open ladder right where food is prepared.

    I’ll echo Simon’s remarks, I do not understand the narrow corridor design.

    I see the sanitation issue of the ladder being over the end of the kitchen counter, and I would also feel cramped in the narrow living space.
    I’d make the bath more compact, and use a collapsible drop ladder, which could fold up into its own attractive wooden cabinet under the midpoint of the edge of the loft. That would open up the space.

    looks very well constructed, but have to agree with others here about the layout. even more so with the side entrance that would allow the bathroom across the end with the kitchen rotated across the end. place the ac in the loft wall to make room for the kitchen there. leaves you with the most room for living area.

    also would echo the thoughts about sanitation of the stairs above the stove/cooking prep area. we have seen a few designs like this. also the storage stairs in others. just need to consider the dust and sand that will fall. you could enclose them, but then that is less “open” looking and makes them close in on the room they are in. cloth could be a solution that is less claustrophobic. would look more loose but still catch the debris.

    Weird layout that does not maximize space, but wastes it.

    I agree with a previous comments about not wanting to climb the stairs over the food prep area. That really grosses me out. Maybe a sheet of plexiglass could be nailed on the backside of the stairs. The other concern is lack of living space on the first floor. Looks like a small chair or maybe two is the most you could put in that nook.

    What are you supposed to do with that odd space next to the bathroom?.

    I’m sorry but I don’t care for the design, either. Looks like the bidding ended with 0 bids. Had they put the bathroom at the end, that would’ve given much more living space in the center. No place to sit down comfortably, unless it’s just one person (1 chair) and no guests.
    That’s a huge a/c for a tiny space, too. I would’ve used one of those skinny units and placed in a different spot.
