A friend just bought a house. It's an OK house, nothing all that special but not terrible either. It has an attic over the attached garage, which extends partway over the livingroom as well. If I owned that house, I would be trying to figure out how to put in a secret stairway -- I don't much like ladders, even the fold-down one which really isn't that bad -- and a skylight, and get a nice comfortable chair up there. If it were a little bigger, I'd put in a half-bath and just lurk in the attic.
I'm pretty sure I need a vacation when I think things like this.
