Loft Going Up!

a while back, I notched out the mortises in the main kitchen area post, to be ready for the loft beams:

Yesterday, we put those beams into place, including the madrone center (corner?) post. Here's a photo looking into the notch of the southern beam, with the madrone post sticking through it, (notice the hole for the wooden peg already drilled) and ready for the short, eastern beam to connect them:

And here's what they look like put up:

Here's a view from the living room/entryway area. We are still thinking about whether we'll cut that end off the short beam (the thing hanging over Melissa) or maybe carve something onto it.
