Yes, youre right, that measurement includes the ensuite and WIR. So there will be a small space for a study, just trying to work out layouts. :)

I have included something similar to this in the downstairs space, but without the doors.

Not as far as I've been advised. I am on a corner lot though so its encouraged to have balconies. Not sure what the deal is with standard lots.
