This is the loft I was working on for my apartment with the studio technician at the woodshop in the museum where I work.
We loaded his pick up truck and drove slowly... I didn't think it would all fit but Pinelle made it happen. He kinda does that a lot.
It is a freestanding loft with 4, 6x6 legs. Its dimensions measure 10' long x 6' wide x 7.5' high. It is as tall as a doorway.
The joists are made from 2x6s around a 2x8 frame so that I could get a lip for the finished plywood can seat in it. So for example, I can leave a book up there and it won't get pushed off because it has an inch and a half lip to push against.
There are 4 sets of shelving running along in an L shape. They act as
supports to keep the legs 90 degrees. I also had a corner table cut from pre finished plywood, installed and had a section cut so that it can pivot up - as a drawing table with a lip installed so that pencils and tools won't roll off when its angled up.
The ladder is cut at a 40 degree angle ( i think)
The empty space is used to fit my flat files which fit perfectly underneath.
That's my makita drill, it rocks sooo much. Just sayin'
