above: lot preparation last fall …
Recall this infill on Primrose and Lorne, by the staircase, has been featured on earlier posts.
By the end of December, the garage floor has been poured on the third floor — flush with Upper Lorne — although the bridge to get to it was not yet in place.
The picture above shows the windows installed. Notice that on the fourth floor there is one large room to the right and a smaller room instruding onto the deck. The smaller box, fenestrated on several sides, is the stairwell that runs through all the levels, with generous windows on each floor letting light pour into the house.
In the picture below it is possible to see the fourth floor top of the stairwell, with windows on three sides; below that on the third floor is a huge window facing Lorne (east); and below that a window on the second floor that while it faces the cliff will let in a lot of indirect light, similar to side windows on most houses that abut other houses. The garage door (to the left) is boarded over with wood.
