Hello, love the plans. if we made the bathroom into a bedroom, would a double mattress fit inside? Could you give me the dimensions of the bathroom?

Does this design feature insulation that will be efficient in a four season climate? Also, does the plan include electric and plumbing information?

Hello Tyler,
There is 2 by 6 timber framing – you can extend them to 2 by 8 to have more insulation.
It contains schematic plans of wiring / plumbing etc.
