- The video says it
all... or will say it all whenever I get THAT
- The kids are so
happy with what is sooooo little space. LOL.
I mean, once we get carpet in and a bed and
lights... it will be pretty cool - but it's fucking
plywood and a roof that you can only SIT UP in.
Ya know? But it is a legit "upstairs", which has been
their dream for years.
- What it also is?
Is an escape hatch for Vienna when Cam gets too
annoying. It could also very well be where she sleeps
in the future (though they'd have to share a closet in
the main bedroom). It's a solution to a problem that's
coming very soon: they won't be able to share a
bedroom in their teens. We'll see how it transforms
over time. Hell I can even make a little door to the
rest of the attic (where we shot Meeting Michael) and
maybe make that even more space. Heat is an issue of
course... she has a register RIGHT there, so it could
be OK - but in the winter that space gets hot as hell
in comparison to the rest of the house (if the sun is
out) and we can't exactly turn on the air conditioning
to the whole house in December so climate control is
gonna be a problem to solve. Some solar panels over
that section of the roof would help a bunch as well as
maybe a wall unit... time will tell! Made this thing
way earlier than necessary so we'll be able to see
what is necessary as the seasons change.
- But alas, this is
the year-ender. I'll have to do the real year-ender
tomorrow which feels super weird as I've never done
that in 23 years, but this has been a super-weird
time. The kids are actually in the loft NOW attempting
to sleep their overnight. With sleeping bags on
plywood because they can even DO that shit. Goddamn,
my body hurts just thinking about that.
- Good luck to 'em.
Happy New Year...
