Thanks for that link - I'd love a house like that and have enjoyed looking at all the pics as I've followed the various links. The book 'A Pattern Language' by Alexander et al is one of my favorites. I bought it about 25 years ago when we were planning our current house. Unfortunately we were intimidated into building a conventional house at that time due to building codes, lack of personal time, and lack of unconventional tradespersons in the area.

I've always liked those bed alcoves which are seen throughout Scandinavian countries (altho different style from shown on the FB page). My Grands would love them!
