What They Did Upstairs

Created Second-Floor Bedroom Suites and Home Office. Disston's concept for the upper floors was "Mike's Weekend Inn." Two of the three bedrooms, each with its own bath, have porches. The home office is just opposite the top of the circular stairs.

Used Kids' Attic Bedroom Suite. On the third floor, Mike wanted a bedroom and bath designed specifically for his young nephews, who are frequent visitors. So there are built-in twin beds with trundles underneath and a bathroom sink decorated with sailors' signal flags that spell out "Brush your teeth."
