TSCC: Layout of the Connor house & grounds

Ever wonder what obsessed fans (after this, I think I can own that label) do when they should be working? Well I'll tell you. They try to figure out the mystery of the Connor house layout. To do that, they watch every scene of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" that's set in and around the house over and over again to pick up on clues to the floor plan. Next, they spend tedious hours diagramming the whole thing, even going so far as to add in furniture. Okay, so maybe all obsessed fans don't do that, but this one does—did. I love drawing floor plans anyway, so really this was a lot of fun for me. And now on to the fruits of my labor...

Keep in mind this is essentially a work-in-progress because there are sections of the house we've not seen, including a room behind the kitchen, a third bedroom on the first floor, and an upper level. Based on the layout of Cameron's room and the hallway outside of it, I believe her room is upstairs and either Derek is using that 3rd bedroom on the 1st floor (and we just haven't seen him in it yet) or he probably soon will be if he stays with the Connors.

If you have any questions about the layout or think something is wrong, let me know. The images are all the same, just different sizes. Take your pick:

Connor House Layout: 800 x 445 png

Connor House Layout: 1000 x 556 png

Connor House Layout: 1500 x 834 png

A fun thing I picked up from doing this (read no further if you haven't seen "What He Beheld")...
At the end of the finale, Sarah looks out John's window when she hears the explosion, but that window faces another house, not the street. The jeep would have most likely been parked on the kitchen side of the house (which is where they seem to come and go from most of the time) and there's no way she could have seen anything from that window.

NOTE: a revised version of the layout that has Cameron's room on the main level is available here.

Obsessive fan? Me? ;)
Glad you like it. The Connor house is quite intriguing and I'd been wanting to finish this for a while. If you hadn't asked for a house plan, I might never have done it. So thanks for motivating me. It was fun.

I remember seeing Derek walk down the hall to Cam's room from the sofa, so it would have to be on the the same floor, right?

I didn't see that. If you can let me know which episode it was, I'll double-check. The only time Derek's been to Cameron's room that's I've seen was during Vick's Chip, when they were all in there to remove her chip (and you never saw anyone walk to her room, they cut to the scene), and at the end of The Demon Hand when he stands in her doorway and watches her ballet. In that scene, he walks up to the doorway from the adjacent hall.

It's actually the bit of the hall that you see in that scene that led me to believe her room couldn't be the third bedroom on the main level, so the only other spot it could be is behind the kitchen or upstairs, but I wouldn't expect a bedroom to be in that space behind the kitchen.

UPDATE
I made some minor changes to the diagram.

Something just wasn't sitting right with me in the foyer, so I rechecked some stuff and made some changes.

This is so fantaboulous, and it's all shiny and professional looking!

The only thing I had a question about is the swing set. I had a distinct feeling it was in the backyard as it seemed to be in a fenced in area (seen in eps 7)... unless they have their front yard fenced in, which is odd but not out of the realm of possibility.

I had a feeling we were going to have to do this the hard way! I tried to fit Cameron's room into that bedroom between Sarah's and John's, but the view we get of the hallway outside her room (when Derek watches her do her ballet) doesn't match with the main level hallway:

Hallway outside Cameron's room.

Also, we catch a glimpse of some furnishings in that 3rd bedroom on the main level in "Vick's Chip" as Sarah is walking to the bathroom to confront Derek in the shower. You have to slow-mo to see, but the furniture in there doesn't match what's in Cameron's room.

Poor Derek. Still relegated to the living room couch. So sad.

In other words, awesome job! :D

I'm sure he'll be taking up residence in that center bedroom soon enough if he stays on in the Connor house. But I do have to wonder why he was on the couch in the first place when they had a spare room.
