    My sewing room is upstairs! We may be downsizing in the next couple years so I have been giving a lot of thought. What do I want out of it. Not upstairs is the one thing I can say. I am constantly having to run up and down the stairs. For everything. My dh will be downstairs and I up, so I got to run down to see what he wants or is saying. Lord know, he isn't coming up to me!

After living with this set up for 2 years, I think I would prefer being on the first level of the house. It's just my husband and I, and he spends most of the day out of the house at his workshop, but in the evenings he is in his loft which is just outside my sewing room door. The biggest negative for me is if I'm sewing upstairs during the day, I can't hear when someone comes to the door (which isn't very often, but still). I think the fact that it seems a little secluded keeps me from spending as much time there as I'd really like.

    As for your other questions, I prefer a room with a door I can close if it's a mess. As big as possible. I think a family room if it's big and has a door. Like others have said, the bigger the better.

    Good luck with your search. We moved here 2 1/2 years ago and it was such fun looking at houses and thinking which room would be mine. Have fun on your search!
    Just a suggestion for you - my sewing studio is in our well lit walk out basement level, which I love but I couldn't hear the doorbell down there. We found a plug-in doorbell unit that somehow gets connected to the main doorbell upstairs, and now I can hear it. We got it at the local home improvement store and it wasn't expensive. DH hooked it up and it only took a few minutes. Plus you can plug this in anywhere, even outside in the backyard and it will ring when the main doorbell does.
