"Are you going to raise the roof?"

Here is what I accomplished yesterday.

I cut the new windows and door opening.  I still
have some sanding and trimming to do.

Casey's quick comment on yesterday's post saved me from a disaster.  She asked me if I was going to raise the roof?

If I had cut the door opening by my original measurements, it would have been too low.  Thanks Casey!

Here is the left corner window opening.   I plan to frame it out with "glass."

This kit is quite small.  I'm not sure all of my furniture will fit?

I  will need to extend the floor out a few inches.  I want to add a patio downstairs and a deck for the apartment upstairs.

I am going to raise the roof.   This is the plan for the windows.  The roof will be flat so I can add exposed duct work and lights to the ceiling.

I still have a lot of work to do!  It was nice to have the day off yesterday.  Sometimes it's good to be nice to yourself and just take a day to play!

Hi Kathi,
Looking good. I can't wait to see the project progress.
THank you for your lovely comment on my blog, I'm really happy my window inspired you, I'm flattered! I can't wait to see your windows.
Have a terrific weekend,

Dear Kathi! You're so courageous!

That's a great project, although you don't make it easy on yourself changing the whole kit ;) . But that's the charm of it as well. I'm looking forward to the progress, really curious how it turns out.
