TSCC: The season 1 Connor house v2

This is a new version with Cameron's room on the main level.

After all the discussion about where Cameron's bedroom is in the first version of the Connor house layout that I did, I've revised it to incorporate her room on the first floor. I had to do some maneuvering to get it to fit the space, but I think it works okay. And of course, what revision would be complete without a little tinkering? So I've made other adjustments as well.

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

Connor House Layout v2: 700x464 png

Connor House Layout v2: 900x597 png

Connor House Layout v2: 1300x862 png

Continuity Notes:
In terms of interior/exterior appearance, you'll find discrepancies on the front porch side of the house. From the inside, Sarah's bedroom wall (opposite the bed) has three windows. From the outside, there are only two. Also, the entrance on that side has a single stained-glass door from the inside, but solid double doors from the outside. I went with the interior views of those things for building the layout since that's what we see more often.

I love how it looks. I wonder though, about those 4 people sharing a bathroom, I'll bet mornings are very hectic and tense. I can hear it now, the pounding on the door, the shouts of "What are you doing in there?!" Derek fishing through the trash for a toothbrush, and Cameron applying her eyeliner with a pencil not quite sharp enough for brain surgery. My teen years are flashing back to me, I have 6 siblings and 4 of us were in high school at the same time. We were not allowed to use Daddy's bathroom, it was reserved for parental use, so our mornings were bitter at times and certainly not Brady Bunch-like.

Yeah I was surprised that there was only one bathroom, but that's all we've seen. Sarah in the tub in "The Turk" and Derek brushing his teeth and showering in "Vicks' Chip"... it's all in the same bathroom. There could be a second one upstairs (if we ever see the upstairs). Otherwise, one bathroom is all they've got.

Yikes! I only have one bathroom in my house and at our fullest, we had 5 people living here. Morning bathroom time had to be scheduled, but it worked out okay because everyone left for work at staggered times.

Wasn't the bathroom with the tub/shower at the top of the stairs? I thought I remembered an establishing shot (from the stairs across the landing into the bathroom) to that effect in The Turk (while Sarah's talking about Heisenberg and baseball players).

No, but that was a tricky shot to figure out and actually became an important piece to understanding the house layout (believe me, I studied it carefully).

The establishing shot of Sarah in the tub starts from a few feet inside Cameron's room, rolls forward to the doorframe then cuts to the close-up of Sarah. Before that cut, you catch a glimpse of the wide intersection of hallways. You can see the pillars up past the bathroom on the right that separate the dining room from the living room, the 2 open doorways that lead right, to the foyer, and the hallway leading left down to John's room. The bathroom is straight across from the camera's position.

One thing I know I don't have quite right is the length of the tub. It should actually be more visible in the doorway than I've shown it. But trying to layout the house from the glimpses we get, drawing furnishings by just a visual scale, and using lines that don't accurately account for the thickness of walls, things are out of whack by a few feet here and there. It think it's all pretty close, though.

I'm putting together a fan fiction resources site called depot 37. Could I as your permission to mirror your layout there? I'll credit you, and provide a link back.

Certainly. Help yourself. :)
