My Landing - better access to my loft...

Under construction...no-no not the patio! - this webpage!


The first years I could only get to my loft by using a ladder, limiting the use to, well yes, rather useless,
so I decided to construct stairs and landing...this will also make it so much easier, when my plans concerning
insulating the roof from inside, laying a good floor, and what else I wanna do up there, are being realized...



The hatch leading to the loft is at the eastern end of my house...
here is where the landing will be...and the first raw sketch...



I started working on September 1. - 2011...
3 brackets firmly mounted into the wall...



Now it's time to buy the materials, polebearers, poles, beams, screws and whatever is needed...
 and now a lot of measuring and sawing begins...September 11. - 2011, new batteries for my drill has arrived,
So now I can really begin to work seriously...

 

The next steps leading towards my loft...  ;-)



What the #&!% you think you're doin' up there buddie?


Hey doggie...this is what I'm doin'...



The deck is ready on September 17. - 2011...good views from up here!



Since I don't want nobody, including myself, to fall down from there, I better make a railing...A-haa!



I even think I want to paint it...it looks better, and will last longer...A-haa!

Stairs - stairs - stairs...It's time for stairs...
Stairs are fairly complicated to calculate, measure, fit and to build...
At least that's what I think...


On October 14. - 2011...I take the first steps...eeeh?



October 17. - 2011...Getting there...
October 19. - 2011...Built and painted!


...And I like it...!
