Does this Floorplan of the Golden Girls House Make Sense?

There is a bedroom in a very weird place.

Yes, the girls used the veranda quite often. Remember when Stan first showed up and towards end of show Dorothy was sitting out on the veranda, he goes to say "goodbye" or something, and she lets him have it with both barrels.

Only episode recall actually seeing any bathroom on GG is when the girls did their own plumbing.

Otherwise it was always just referred to as when Rose says she stops drinking all fluids after 8PM, and Dorothy counters that Rose gets up to go to bathroom frequently at night keeping her awake. This could only make sense if the two shared a room, or the bathroom was near at least Dorothy's bedroom.

No, GG house doesn't make sense, nor did it as seasons wore on where it did indeed seem as if all four girls had their own bedrooms with private bathrooms.

For house that size it would be a stretch for master bedroom to have own private bath with one or two bedrooms sharing another. That house also didn't have a powder room which meant guests would have to have used one of the bathrooms off a bedroom. This isn't practical if the only way to reach would be going through one of the bedrooms.

But we're talking about television here sets have their own requirements that do not necessarily match whatever home is used for outdoor shots.

Pick a house; The Stephens place on Bewitched, The Brady's home, and so many others floor plans do not nor could not match sets. Bewitched was famous for that back staircase added when they redid set after a fire. It went no where nor could it because the master bedroom was above that area. They also added another bedroom above the living room which would have been impossible given height of living room ceiling.

Anyway, we see them all coming from the same hallway, but we really don't know if that hallway has another hallway off to the right where the additional bedrooms are.

We discussed this in another thread. By the 1960's formal dining rooms were fading out of new construction. Dining areas off the living room was another matter.

Blanche's house had a dining area on other side of living room near windows that looked out onto patio (or whatever you want to call it). Think in later episodes it may have been reduced to a few chairs and small table. It wouldn't have mattered because the girls never used any other place to eat besides kitchen table.

Don't have time atm to do the research, but more and more Blanche's house seems like a vacation home or some place a married couple moved to when downsizing. Blanche had a few children and there was no way her, the husband and three or more kids all would have lived in that house. It just doesn't work to my mind's eye.

Here's a more realistic floor plan. 3 of the bedrooms are all in that one hall. Blanche's BR is the first door on the right (with its own bathroom). There's still one bedroom off to the left side with its own bathroom. 3 bathrooms, total.

Apparently the girls divided household chores among them, though you never saw any lift a finger.

There was an episode where Rose forgot to do something or whatever and Dorothy and Blanche were ganging up on her, in her defence Rose went on about how she "washed the mop" after it had been used. When they kept harping on Rose stood her ground saying "I cleaned the god damn mop..." or words to that affect.

Of course in beginning Blanche had Coco the gay houseboy; but he was written out and that was that. IIRC the addition of Sophia as part of main ensemble cast would have made things too unwieldy with Coco remaining. Show as "Golden girls", not golden girls plus "one of the girls".

That being said there was and still is plenty of cheap labor in Florida (immigrant women) who work as dailies. The girls easily could have pooled money each week to have someone come in to do the major housekeeping.

When Blanche's grandson comes to stay while his Yankee father and Blanche's daughter sort out their marriage Dorothy moves into Sophia's bedroom so the kid can have hers.

As seen in the opening credits, Blanche's bedroom is supposed to be behind the door that is at the very end of the hallway (from the episode, "Job Hunting," where Blanche says she is jumpier than a virgin at a prison rodeo). Rose's room is to the left and Dorothy's is to the right, Directly across from Rose's.

If you base ever changing floor plan on this episode, presumably Sophia's room is directly next to Dorothy's, at the start of the hallway, to the right.

Following this setup, there doesn't seem to be room for any standalone bathroom in that hallway.

In that same episode mentioned in R123, it's funny because you can see directly out the back of the living room, which is their lanai, or other outdoor space, and in doing so, it shows that there is no way there can be a bedroom where Rose's room is. If there were, there would only be a wall visible through those doors.

Just watched the scene where Rose fake seduces Elliot and it gave me a glimpse of how the show would've been if Betty White played Blanche instead of Rue.

Blanche wasn't coming from her bedroom in that episode R123 she always used the communal bathroom when she needed to do a number 2. Couldn't take the stink if it were in her ensuite

I like a hall instead of coming straight into the living room but I guess that's more practical for a sitcom?

Went to a taping, the UFO episode. They did some scenes on the lanai and the set was exactly where it seemed on the show tucked behind the living room and we had to watch the monitors for those scenes.

Why did they have a gardener if it was only that little pocket of concrete?

They had small half baths in their room except for Blanche. The full bath would have on the left of the house or across from Sophia's room in the front of the hallway.

Btw, Sophia usually moved into Dorothy's room. Not Dorothy moving into Sophia's room. Sophia's room was smaller than the other three.

I never understood where the garage was. It was suggested it was from the kitchen, but that is where Dorothy and Sophia's room would have been unless there was a long narrow hallway then the garage opened up.

Something that always bothered me was it was three women with three cars, whenever they showed the inside of the garage there were no cars in there and there were no cars ever parked in the driveway.

R131 But that Blue gray car was always shown pulling up!

R130 The 2 car garage is in the front of the house (like the stock photo suggests).

The small laundry (off the back left of the kitchen behind the wall phone) is never mentioned in any episode but Dorothy comes out of it once with a laundry basket. In many episode you can see that it has the same wall paper as the kitchen (so no garage is there). The girls never use the door to the garage in front of the kitchen table (they would be walking into the cameraman) so one will announce that she is going to the garage then goes thru the laundry, out the back door & around to the garage's side door along the fridge's wall (seen in an episode about the garage - the minks one or the becoming an extra bedroom one perhaps?).

Many viewers think that because they announce that they're "going to the garage" & then leave (exiting back left) that the garage is behind the house (not in the front as the stock photo suggests).

Blanche also does her "Blee Och" reading of the bleach label in 1 laundry episode suggesting that she has never seen/heard a bottle of it in her 5 decades plus on the Earth. Yeah right.

Did they at least have toilets in their bathrooms?
