One area of the ADU that is very important to me is the sleeping area. It is where you start and end the day. It should be a space where one feels safe and relaxed. A nest.
When designing the space I wanted the second story of the ADU to have a bright and loft-like feel. It needed windows and skylights and comforting space. Originally, we specified sheets of plywood for the flooring as a way to save money and achieve warmth through the use of natural materials. Luckily, we kept crunching numbers so that I was able to make a small splurge and get VG fir floors and risers. For the past 10 years I have worked with the same floor finisher and installer, Ovi. I would not have anyone but him do the work in my home. I am so glad Ovi made the time to work me into his busy schedule and I could not be happier with the results!
