We're a long way from being done with the loft. We want to replace the door to the balcony because it leaked in the beginning. Marc caulked it and it doesn't leak any more but we don't feel confident about it and just want to install one that we know we won't have a problem with. You can sort of see the balcony out the door in this pic. It's not big, but room enough for us to have a glass of wine in the evening. We couldn't decide what kind of floor we wanted so we painted the floor with porch paint. It actually looks good. This way we were able to move furniture out of the warehouse we've been paying for for 2 years! Later we'll put down a wood floor, but we're in no hurry. We want to buy a desk for the loft, maybe a roll-top, and build or buy book shelves. And I want some sort of sewing cabinet, but I haven't been able to find one that I like that will fit. The side walls are 50" tall, which sort of limits what I can do.
Within the next couple of weeks we expect the stairs to be finished and we'll post pics of them.
