12/04/2005 - Attic Before Construction Started
Looking toward the back of the house. The window will be replaced with an egress window - big enough for a fireman in full gear with an air tank. We have absolutely no problem with that. If a fireman wants to get in, I am all for letting him in. And we'll have a bigger view of the lake. There will be a pocket door to the right at the top of the stairs, going to a closet which runs along the sidewall. Unfortunately, it looks big on the plans, but because of the roof pitch will probably be smaller than we dreamed. If there's room, Leslie's chair will wait for her to the left of the stairs. Oh, and there will be built-in bookshelves all along the left side, on the outside wall.
