New construction bonus room with steps down into it???
Hi Everyone, new to the forum, first post. Building a new house and my architect designed the bonus room (above the garage) to have 3 steps to walk down into the room. He claims that it allows for the front of the house on that side to be lower and have less space on the front elevation between the garage doors and the bonus room upper windows. Says this is common. I wanted to remove the 3 steps and he would do it but is recommending against it saying its nice to walk down into it felling more cozy and makes the house look lower on that side and better from the front as the center of the house is taller.
Anyone have a house with bonus room steps, trying to avoid them if possible.
