This first drawing (above) is the floor plan, showing the new dormer window and the two new closets and the electrical outlet locations.

This drawing shows the ceiling layout, I am planning on using a mixture of recessed can lights and track-like fixtures to position over the dollhouses. Ceiling fans are a necessity here in Oklahoma in the hot humid summers. The room will serve at least 3 functions - house my miniature collection, house our hobby area, and serve as a guest bedroom.
Here is a section detail and elevation at the new dormer window, I am excited to see how this will open up the space and add some natural light. The new window was also a necessity to meet the code as a second way out in case of a fire since the only window in the space is a small non-operable one on the front elevation of the house.
This last drawing shows where the dormer sits in relation to the rest of the house. It will add a little character to this side of the house which is pretty boring ( and rather close to the neighbors)
I will post more pictures later as the project progresses. The big question right now is what kind of flooring? I am leaning towards either laminate or vinyl that looks like wood. I did also see an interesting cork floor. Let me know what you have on your craft room floors and if it works well!
