Instead of using the interior loft that came with the kit I've decided to add a second floor apartment above the coffee shop. The entrance is on the right.
I will be using the deck from the garage as a pattern for an outside staircase. Sometimes it pays not to finish projects. :D Especially if you decide to use parts of them for something else!
I cut another corner window downstairs in the coffee shop. The floor/ceiling is just taped up for now. I will need to figure out how to run the lights before I finish that. It's not level now but it will be. I hope...
This is another view with the second floor addition. Here the back wall is 6" tall. I came up with an idea to remedy that.
I plan to raise the roof 3" at the back to match the front of the shop, making it level. I can't have my apartment dweller bumping her head on the ceiling! I think adding clerestory windows to the sides and back wall will take care of that?
This is how the front corner will look. I will frame out the corner windows. This side is made using the WalMart foam core. See the ripples? I need to cut a new wall with the "good stuff."
Pay no attention to the piles of fabric behind this. When you are on a roll, you don't stop and take time to clean up! LOL
As you see, I've created at LOT more work for myself! I think it will look great, if I can do it?
Hope you have a beautiful day!
