VI.15.22 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking east towards tablinum, with window.  According to NdS, this small house had walls coated with rustic plaster, with a high dado of brick plaster (mattone pesto). On entering the house, on the right, was the kitchen.
On the extreme lower right of the above photo would be the stairs to the upper floor.
The perfectly preserved remains of an upstairs latrine were discovered on the upper floor.
The doorway in the wall on the right leads to a room where a human skeleton was found on 26th June 1897. Opposite the doorway, on the left, was a small garden. The doorway on the left leads into a room, the triclinium, with a window onto the garden. See Notizie degli Scavi, June 1897, (p.272-3)
Another human skeleton was reportedly found in a room on the south side of the atrium on 17th June 1899. See Notizie degli Scavi, June 1899, (p.235)
According to Hobson, there were two upper storey latrines discovered in Reg. VI, one in VI.15.20, the other here in VI.15.22. See Hobson, B., 2009. Latrinae et foricae: Toilets in the Roman World. London; Duckworth. (p.75)
