When you arrive at my house you will immediately notice something about it. It is a double level ranch—that is, a building that all the rooms are contained on one floor yet there’s two floors. It’s a structural oddity. When you enter you will notice that the foyer resides on a central meeting place of two staircases…one that goes up and one that goes down. That strange structural feature would surprise you in a hospital or an office building but it doesn’t surprise you so much here. Especially since you can see the upper living room is right above your head on the other side of an oak wood railing.
