This is a rough model of what the real thing looks like right now, the process is of course far from finished.
The steps are the bookshelves as well as the means of getting up to the top, you can sit underneath with a cosy blanket on a big cushion when you are reading something that requires that kind of setting.
Or you can sit on top in a mountaion of pillows feeling like the emperor of your livingroom when you are reading something grand and profound!
I am currenty trying to decide on the right height for this bookcase and I was hoping you people out there would help me.
Here is a diagram of the 2 heights, the lower one is based on the lowest standard ceiling height of 244mm
It’s 1400mm high.
This height would work in any home and the footprint is smaller too so it takes up less space, it has 5 shelf-meters.
This one below is the higher version, this is 1700 mm high and would look great in a room with high ceilings, it does have a bigger footprint but there is more space underneath for sitting and it has 6 shelf-meters.
Here is a POLL for wich one you prefer, please do leave a comment on why you prefer one or the other.
