    But since traveling against the current is an unavoidable challenge, it is better to face it (a houe changes your life), and as Vittorio Alfieri said: ” I wanted, always wanted, very strongly I wanted”….

    At first glance, this has appeal. It does indeed appear to be designed with a specific type of guest in mind but “checking” myself in and getting settled I start to ask the ‘whys’. Why is the bed almost 4 feet off the floor and how do I get in without scraping my shins and will I remember at night that I’m at twice the normal altitude. Why not use a sofa bed as the Murphy bed renders the sofa redundant and it certainly isn’t any more difficult to make.
    Those showers look cool without a surround but I’ve been there/done that and they are totally impractical–even if you do slope the floor and drain it properly.
    Barn doors are also cool and “in” but why the roll-up garage door? They are impossible to seal properly; they collect dirt and when you do roll it up, it dumps that dirt on you. I could think of a dozen ways to accomplish the same thing, (even with the long bar in front).
    Given the size of the split unit A/C, you could store meat in the unit when not occupied and do you really want it pouring into the bathroom even with short walls–another mistake: You don’t want all that bathroom humidity invading such a small space. Ventilate the bathroom with a light/fan on a timer and put the split unit on another wall.
    Projection TV’s are so passe and have lousy resolution. Install a pop-up, or hang it on a wall. Washer/Dryer combinations are like a combination hammer-screwdriver–they don’t do either efficiently but…. enough

      There are always trade offs and reasons people do it differently depends on those trade offs…

      Take the Murphy bed over the couch… The reason for that is because the Murphy bed allows for a more comfortable bed than the couch would be able to offer.

      A mattress you can fold away can’t be as thick and a folding structure can’t provide as much support beneath the mattress as a more rigid platform.

      A mattress you fold away also posses other possible concerns because that tends to not allow proper airflow over the mattress and that can trap moisture and make it hard to dry out properly, which can lead to mold and other issues, which of course makes it less idea for long term use…

      Then there’s the curbless shower, which someone in a wheelchair can find very practical… Among other examples where other people can have a very different opinion on it…

      While the placement of the AC unit is odd, its placement actually blows the cold air along the ceiling and towards the couch/bed area, where you would primarily want it… There is also a bathroom wall vent by the toilet… While AC units also act as dehumidifiers, which also helps…

      While they actually do make garage doors that can seal, they’re just not cheap. But dirt is an issue you’ll deal with the windows and doors as well if you don’t clean the exterior periodically… As for the reason for it, it is simply a way to easily open the space to the outdoors. More a question of why they put the table there as otherwise it opens the room up to the deck and increases the available usable space…

      Then there’s the projector… They actually can go to very high resolution. It’s only the cheap ones that are low resolution these days and you are only limited by the size screen you can project on to, which you can easily replace or switch to a different size without the cost of getting a whole new system… So more a question of whether someone prefers a movie theater type arrangement or regular TV… But you can get a 8K laser projector for an Imax Theater like experience if it’s in your budget…

        I’ll accept most of James’ rationale as simply difference of opinion but getting into and out of a bed that is four feet off the floor–especially one with a lot of unprotected steel frame is asking for trouble.

        • James D. November 3, 2018, 6:30 pm

          Potentially, but you could just either remember to keep the coffee table clear and use it as a stepping platform, looks like it has metal legs so should be able to handle plenty of weight, or just turn the chair around and push it up to the bed frame to provide an alternative step ramp…

          Kitchen may also have a step stool, looks like one is propped against the mini-fridge, considering how high the top shelf is…

          Though, they could always replace this with a Murphy bed that has an integrated couch. So they can just remove the back rest cushions to lower the bed flush with the couch seats instead of over the whole couch and thus let it sit lower…

          They probably did it this way to save on costs… It’s not easy to make a comfortable couch in a DIY and commercial Murphy beds with integrated couches can be quite expensive but nothing stopping them from upgrading it later…

          So it could be better but it’s not that hard to work around it for now…

    We could go on forever.
    Even if this rather cute “guest cottage” is not aimed at air B&B or commercial rental, your best friend is apt to sue you when he falls out of a 4-foot high bed or slips on the slippery tile that is not barricaded from the shower. It’s a tough world James.

    • James D. November 4, 2018, 12:36 am

      That’s what disclaimers and waivers are for… Heck, the bed could be on the floor and someone could sue you for it being a trip hazard… Between crooks, dishonesty, and people not taking responsibility for their own actions there’s a lot to protect yourself from no matter what…

      Besides, the shower floor isn’t tiled… Only the rest of the bathroom floor is and there is such a thing as slip resistant tile and people can simply be smart enough to either dry off before walking on the tile or wear non-slip slippers… Bathrooms are inherently hazardous no matter how they are designed but most risks are manageable if you just take proper precautions and don’t expect anything to be fool proof…

    The bed looks like it has a leg to stand on. Probably the coffee table.
    Their is a ceiling fan in the living room as well. That could help with any bath steam. I’m sure you could ask for a bathroom rug to suit the floor.
    Going from the bamboo floor stand to a rug would work. With only one or two in the space I don’t think steam to be a problem. The owner is well known for cleanliness. He would take care of any dust on the garage door.
    I wouldn’t want to see a movie much anyway. But, I’m sure it is good viewing. Or they would have complaints.
