The ground level accommodates two cars and has a door that walks out to a side covered porch. The porch has a 10'–high ceiling and a colonnade of four posts that hold up the roof above.

Exterior stairs lead you to the upper apartment space. The entry door opens into the living space, which is open to the kitchen and dining area. A 6'–high wall helps delineate the entry space, and creates a nook for a built–in/entertainment center in the living room. A raised breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the living area, and provides additional eating and counter space. The full bath has a closet/storage space, and a secondary door that directly accesses the bedroom. The ceiling on this level is set at a lofty 9'6" while sloping down at the outer edges to 7' (except at the dormer in the living room, which retains the 9'6" ceiling height).
