The bedroom above is 10'-3 3/4" x 13'-11 1/4" with a "bump out" of an additional 5' x 3 1/2'. All three bedrooms have closets. The other two bedrooms are being painted - no pictures yet. They are 11'-6 1/4" x 11'-5 1/4" and 11'-1' x 11'-5 1/4".
Note: I own a microFIT solar energy generation system, located on the property. (See panels in the winter image above.) My contract for power generation runs for another 16 years. Possible options on this set up:
- buy the contract outright from me
- rent the space to me for 10% of the monthly income the system generates
