We are starting a new phase on site...the roofers have arrived
Most of the work carried out so far has been over the "east" wing of the house....(sounds very grand I know, but this is the easiest way to describe!) There are two bedrooms and lounge/play room at that end of the first floor and they all have vaulted ceilings.
I'm intending to use the space over the each of girls shower rooms to make a small loft area for sleeping. Something along the lines of this.....(of course no lovely oak beams in our concrete castle!)
I really like how they've used glass balustrading (another idea I'm stealing), it really lets the light in as well as making the area quite secure...it's along way to fall if you roll out of bed!
I'm hoping to squeeze in double mattress up there. It's going to be quite high up but that only seems to add to the excitement and anticipation for my older girls, access will be via a ladder very similar to this.......

Although a "pole" (think fire station rather than strip club!)was on the wish list after seeing this pic....
Great idea girls but Mum said a firm "NO!" to that one!!
