d100 Mansion Rooms

The Winchester Mystery House
So I've been working diligently on Azurholm, the haunted house of the Indigo Lady , and I began to strongly consider the idea of making it something of a labyrinthine Winchester House styled sprawl that seemed to never be in the same configuration. Leave this up to actually being a architectural horror-show or ghost physics or whatever. Of course this means I need rooms to full Azurholm with. While I will, of course, be doing my own takes on these for the eventual module, I figured this list could be useful for the rest of you.

I plan on having the mansion accessed via a set of ornate stairs leading to a Foyer from which everything else branches off from, you can of course handle this however you please. Every time the players open a room, I will roll a d6, indicating the number of doors in this room including the one they came from. A 1 indicates a dead end, 5 indicates stairs, 6 indicates a hidden door.
