    Beautiful this! Really tender, pretty. Who could condemn a “Beneficial Sunbeam”? This is the secret of pleasure, always subjective, but this is yes. OK!? :)))

    loft would be better with a railing. Don’t want to fall off the edges.

      They’re surfers. I’m sure the stairs aren’t the biggest test of their agility 😉

        That is true Tanya but in the middle of the night in the dark it may well be.

          No bench where the stairs are.

          IMO, that gap between the bench and the stairs isn’t wide enough to pose a serious risk… People flail about when they’re moving in the dark, trying to feel their surroundings. So you’ll definitely contact that bench before reaching the edge of the loft and you’d similarly will feel the edge of the stairs with the landing being wide enough even if you miss you’ll just land about a foot below before worrying about the rest of the stairs.

          It’s the last two steps I’d worry about because those are moveable steps and may not be where you remember it being when descending in the dark and that’s about a three foot drop that you could be falling face first into…

          But you could just turn on the light before descending or have a motion activated night light…

    I agree James but I am a person that does not like to leave safety to what ifs. I would put a hand rail and never wonder again. Safety is always the safest way.

    How do you cook food? How do you keep food cold?
