According to Fiorelli –
“VI.17.12-14. Un altra casa teneva sulla via una bottega, di cui sembra caduto il muro di fondo, un adito per la discesa nei sotterranei, e la porta d’ingresso preceduta da vestibolo, a sinistra del quale era un cubicolo. Altri tre cubicoli stavano sul destro lato dell’atrio, di cui essendo sprofondato il tablino, non rimane che una gradinata esistente nella vicina fauce.

"VI.17.12-14. Another house which had a shop on the roadway, of which it seemed the rear wall had fallen, a room to descend to lower floors, and the entrance doorway preceded by a vestibule, to the left of which was a cubiculum. Another three cubicula were on the right hand side of the atrium, the tablinum having collapsed, nothing remained other than a stair existing in the nearby corridor.) 
According to Eschebach, Fiorelli’s description may have been imperfect, “shop does not exist”.

VI.17.13 Pompeii. December 2007. Doorway to cubiculum on south side of entrance, on left.
In the south wall, centre right, there does look like the remains of a doorway, this is shown on the plan by La Vega, but looks like it has now been bricked up.
If there was a doorway there, it would have linked to VI.17.16 and 17, and Piranesi would have been correct in calling it a house with three atriums !

VI.17.13 Pompeii. December 2005. Doorway to first room on north side of atrium, triclinium.
According to Allroggen-Bedel, she could not locate rooms 11 and 12 of VI.17.10, but, she wrote -
“However two rooms in the next door house (VI.17.12-13) meet the description of rooms nos. 11 and 12.
La Vega said that in the space described as no.12, he had discovered a “sotterraneo” (underground room/cellar, etc). 
The characteristics of the rooms– bed recess and sotterraneo, were both to be found next to the cellar stairs in VI.17.12.
The room described as no.11 is probably identical with the room next door (VI.17.13), where the remains of the yellow background central zone remains were preserved.”
