Q:Hello, I'm looking at plan 92465. I really like this plan but have a couple questions. The first one is, from the second level floor plan it notes that the area in the back left corner (over the master bedroom) is open to below. Does this just mean that the ceilings in the master are open, or is it really looking to the loft? Also, in the kitchen, the area close to the windows on the back side of the house seems to be unused. Is this for a nook or breakfast area? Or is there a specific purpose for this open space beyond the counters? Also, is the curved counter a eat at bar where stools can be placed? Is the bar two different levels or all one flat surface. My last question is, if we were to have a basement with this house, would the basement stairs go right underneath the stairs leading to the second level? Is this plan designed for this? Thanks for your help!
A:Bedroom 2 does not overlook the master. This means the master ceiling has a high vaulted area with clear-story windows. The open area in the Country Kitchen is for a small table for a nook/brkfst area. Curved area is indeed for a brkfst bar/stools – either raised or at standard counter height. Lastly, yes, the stairs to the basement go under the current stairs leading to the upper level.
