Really? Okay, the cannery.

I think I drew the stairs proportionally wide. The cannery would probably take up two-three Chicago lots. Offhand I don't know how wide that is. The living/dining room is huge, the kitchen is not bad, but the lofted office and bedroom are small, probably less than 10 feet across with a 3 foot hall that overlooks the main cannery. There's a door to the basement under the stairs, and some kind of door that lets outside from there (where equipment could have been moved) that they never open.

Whee! Thank you so much for drawing this up and posting. It's a little different from what I imagined -- I think it's because of preconceived notions of what I thought it looked like from layouts I've seen in the past. Just me being weird, but I really like seeing it the way it should be :)

No prob, I don't think it's necessary for every reader to "see" it in her mind's eye the exact same way!

Thanks for this! It's different to how I imagined it, but I'm very happy to alter my mind's-eye view. ;-)

I imagined the loft running alongside the longer wall, above where you have the stairs. I think the kitchen was in the same place, but the bathroom was under the stairs. My entrance door was to the left of where you have it, on that other wall. So, my imagination had the area longer to the left and right as you enter, rather than your real version, which is longer in front of the entrance door. Does that make sense? LOL

Is there a half-bath upstairs in the loft? Or is that something they're planning to add? It's been a while since I re-read the series.

They meant to add the half-bath but the closing costs were high and they can't afford to at the moment.

My mind's eye layout is amazingly close to this floor plan. The only thing I had different was the hall door to the outside. I love seeing the interior the way YOU see it!

I also imagine the furniture as looking too spread-out, sort of unanchored, in an overly large space.

I always thought the upper bedroom was at the opposite side of the cannery to the kitchen. Will have to read it again now! Lol

Having the loft over the kitchen controls the kitchen ceiling height, and makes it 9 ft rather than 18 ft.

Ok, this is fun - and I realize that I hadn't really pictured the layout that clearly.

Glad you like it!

These are fun!
I love seeing the differences between the picture that plays in my head while I read and the picture that you imagine as you write.

Congrats on all the recognition GhosTV has gotten lately!

Re: These are fun!
Thanks, I'm glad GhosTV wasn't forgotten because it came out early in 2011, and later releases are more fresh in readers' minds.

Rereading GhosTV again, I'd forgotten how much I laughed at all the New Age foodie stuff!

I could go for one of those big burritos right now.
Jan. 12th, 2012 05:02 pm (UTC)
Love it!
Slightly different than I imagined, but now I see it like this. It makes sense given how the stories take place at the Cannery. :) I love the visual.

Re: Love it!
I'm glad you get a kick out of it :D

I've been rereading all the Psy Cop Novels over the last two weeks and just finished GhosTV and I was again shocked by the ending. I had totally repressed that last development it seems :| Now of course I am wondering when there will be more... There will be more, right? *does Oliver asking for more impression*

Re: OT-ish
Yup, that's the setup for book 7 :-)
