Looking at it, it does seems like a cool place. beds, couches, tables, and space. plenty of stuff you could want.
As for a bit of the comic, the July 12th one, and looking at the blueprints. I do not see a room for Luna, making my guess from her speech that she intends to stay at her house. I guess even Raus needs a bit of company.
Now for a personal thing. See the half-dome up there? I know its a sparing arena now, but when I look I still can't help but imagine Ray Charles up there playing piano. yeaahhh....
Also according to the blueprints there is a TV room. I'm just going to go with that being an outdated piece considering the age of the plans.(1 or 2 years ago) or Xan's Granddad really was so soft in the head he saw through dimensions. or perhaps was a dreamer himself! and he tried to bring technology into Rokenthia! Or maybe he is Ooji. will the guesses ever end!?!?

XD I'm actually going to answer some of your questions and clear up what the differences are between that old floor plan and what it currently is.
First off, the TV room obviously does not exist now. At least the TV part doesn't XD. It's just that living room that Xan pointed out. Which is basically just the TV room without the TV, because Rokenthia does not have TVs (though I make no guarantees that Riza could not /bring/ a TV from Earth. I just don't think she could carry one that far XD)
Also, the closets attached to the bedrooms are now bathrooms because I realized that I had forgotten those XD And there are two more bathrooms attached to the bedrooms that don't have closets.
Finally, the whole place is quite a bit smaller than you see on the blueprint. I think those are the only major differences; there are a couple smaller ones, but nothing too significant.
As for the lack of a room for Luna, there's actually not one for her because she doesn't want one. She can't really leave Riza alone (there's no way that would end well), so she will be moving in with the rest of them, but she doesn't really sleep enough or like to be inside enough to warrant having a bedroom. When she needs to sleep she just naps on the roof.
Also...Ray Charles XD. I almost want to put a piano in that dome now, but I'm not entirely sure such an instrument exists in Rokenthia (I mean, it might; I honestly don't know).
And if Xan's grandpa was Ooji...oh boy. You'll notice throughout the story that Xan has a lot of relatives, but I don't think Ooji's one of them XD. That would just be too much.
