Quote from: Toyotaboy on May 14, 2012, 01:30:26 PMWhat are you doing for a railing on the end of the loft? Just curious. I decided to go with a 40 inch wall. I felt it gives some privacy to anyone in the loft from down below.
Quote from: mogie01 on May 15, 2012, 06:43:52 AMWe're going to use black metal rods for the railings and we have some D-logs left over from trimming the windows outside so we thought we might try to use those as the posts, we'll see how that looks. Most of the time it's going to be just me and my husband up at the cabin so we're not really worried too much about our privacy
Quote from: mogie01 on May 15, 2012, 12:21:44 PMThanks everyone for all the encouragement. We are starting to see major changes to the cabin. For the longest time it seemed we just weren't moving along but now that we have been able to concentrate on the inside it's just amazing how it's taking shape
