This room is in the original building that I added the rooftop bedroom onto.
It will now become the middle floor of the building.
This one room has many spaces that need to fit in it - kitchen, dining area, lounge, the staircase to the bedroom and an entryway and door to outside.
Here's how the room looked when I began stripping it back.
As the room is tight on space I removed the window on the left side wall and boarded it up.
I used foamboard to create some depth to the wall around the windows.
The wall design just sort of happened!
Everything looks better with a little aging.
There's not much room for the staircase so it had to be really steep.
It was too difficult to build a handrail for such a steep staircase so I added a wall to enclose it.
All the walls in this room can be removed.
It's nothing short of a miracle that they actually fit. All too often my measurements are wrong!
And now I have the added challenge of finding something to fit in the space under the stairs!
The empty space on the right there will be the entry door from outside. It's on the side of the building.
So this is a sort of entrance hall.
Still working on the door.
The space on the left behind this wall is where the worlds tiniest kitchen will go!
The kitchen space - 7.5 centimetres deep by 17 centimetres wide!
(3 inches deep by 6 and a half inches wide)
Of course now I can't decide what's going to go in there...the older I get the harder it seems to be to make decisions.
So here's where it's up to.
Too many decisions to make about what to work on next, aaarrrggghhhh!!!
But I'm happy with how it looks so far.
The floor below will the the Patisserie - not even thinking about that yet!
