That floor looks good!  What will that space be used for?  For storage?

Thank you Julia!
All of our carpentry skills improved. Storage is precisley what it will be used for.
Storing the tipi poles, tipi canvas, tarps, rocket mass heater materials, etc.

• Installed second spice rack in kitchen
• Completely dissambled and repaired front loading washer
(ball bearings were completely worn out)

Besides storage of the items Philip mentioned,  paul also hopes to someday use the space as "hippy storage". When the bermshed is complete and expanded we plan to put a lot of those materials in that relatively dry spot. The mezzanine could then be used as a sort of bunk room for students or boots.
