Day #36, 10112012

Mickey finished the pods.  There are seven of them.  They are about 9 1/2 feet off the ground. They are built up into the rafters.  Every other truss came out so a pod could go in.  Framing, sistering and a multitude of various supports were constructed and installed to distribute the weight and share the load…without having to place a column in the room.  It is solid!!!  It’s kind of amazing…

Completed pods with exposed trusses.

a room with a view…

At the West end of the space, the first three pods will be for sleeping.  The other four pods are for storage…of games and fabrics.  Both of our hobbies/passions will share the space, be readily available and add a design element to the room, helping to “tell” our story.

The rolling library ladder will glide along a track system that will be affixed to the BRB.  The ladder will give access to the pods.  We’re getting there…

Piecefully, Pam
