My husband’s winter project elicited a great deal of skepticism from his wife. Yes, it was unfortunate that he could not see out the window in his office. Living in a 4-level barn is definitely interesting, but it comes with built-in limitations, such as where it is and is NOT possible to put windows. Because of the structure, he had only one high window in his loft office–too high to see out of without perching on a chair.
When we did stand on the chair, the view was spectacular. The birds-eye view of The Old Towne Grove Chapel was worth the price of admission, as well as the lofty vantage point of our garden. Beyond that?…miles of farm land spread all the way to the next town.
What’s a guy to do? Why, build a loft in the loft–just big enough to hold a desk and a couple of handy file cabinets. What will that look like, I thought… What a surprise to find it looked like a sturdy deck with stairs and a railing all around set in the middle of his “man room,” and creating quite a unique addition to our barn home.
Every guy needs his space. My guy has created a place where he can do paper work in the clouds…almost. Why did I ever doubt him?
