I live in a 2 story house where 1/2 of my downstairs is open to the upstairs. What I want to do is add a loft coming off the top of the stairs. 2 of the walls are concrete block downstairs and framed up stairs, the third wall is just wood frame. Also the square ft that this will add is not real big, around 160sq. ft.
I am trying to get started with drawing plans out, but do not know where to start.
I was wondering if anyone had any hints or tips about taking on a project like this.
I have done several house projects before and feel confident with my skills as an amateur, but have never done a structural project like this so it should be interesting.
