The lowest story was 5 cubits (7.5 feet) wide, the middle story was 6 cubits (9 feet) wide and the third story was 7 cubits (10.5 feet) wide. Each story was 5 cubits (7.5 feet) high. The different widths allowed the beams to rest on the offsets so that they would not be inserted in the walls of the Temple. The beams between each story were of cedar and the chambers were all boarded with cedar wood. According to the historian Josephus, there were 30 chambers in each story. 1 Chronicles 28:15-16 talked about silver lampstands and silver tables, which we assumed were to be used by the priests in their quarters. Although not mentioned in the Scriptures, there would be other furniture for the priests such as beds, tables, stools, chests, etc.
