|We're converting a 1940's church into a home; initially, it was a big, empty box inside. This is the southeast corner of the room, what you see here is just about 1/4 of the total space in the main building. Here, I built a platform which has two rooms underneath it, nearest to the camera will be a library, and at the back is an office.|
This picture was taken within a minute after I got the bed assembled and threw some comforters on it; you can see that our male cat, Otis, wasted zero time in getting on there and staking his claim. At the right rear, in the chair, those eyes belong to the other cat, Asia.
The church's interior ceiling height is about 14 feet, so I used 9' BCI as the floor joists and we have about 6 1/2 foot ceilings. I'm 5'11" and Deb is about 5'8, so it works out okay. In fact, we got a bonus in the construction of the library, we were able to create bookshelves in the ceiling by attaching 1"x12" planks to the bottoms of the joists, which made for perfect paperback bookshelves in the amount of about 132 linear feet (12, 11' shelves.)
Those partially completed stairs you see in the foreground were, so far, the most difficult part of the project; stairs are tricky darned things. They're done now as far as the surface goes. The outside wall will wait upon further inspiration.
