I sleep on the cabinet side and have removed the panel inside the cabinet next to the TV and installed an outlet in the box behind the TV tapping into the TV outlet for power. This give me a place to plug my phone in at night and I leave the cabinet door open with the phone on top of it while charging. Since my back issues cause me to wake up frequently I can just peek at the phone and decide if it is too early to get up. Better than our house as far as I am concerned.
I sleep on the same side of the loft (aft) too...head toward the drivers side. Our loft holds a Cal-King sized mattress.
The Mrs has an outlet in the night table. I have an extension cord from the TV outlet. Charge phones, alarm clock, CPAP, etc... anything sitting in the end cabinet.
Having the loft makes for the biggest living space and garage possible!
Why anyone would be willing to give-up all that valuable floor space for a bedroom you only use 6-8 hours a day, is a mystery to me.
If Damon/TMC had just made the loft floor on a powered lift to be able to drop into the ceiling space of the garage (only need about the height of the top stair riser to be able to sit upright), there would never have even been any argument.
Just sit on the tread of the top stair to see how roomy it would be. This is a future planned project to help me for when I get past the age of 60
The Loft floor would block the top of the door a bit when dropped...and the garage TV would need to be a bit lower (but not much). No problem in trade for an adult sized loft
