We have just bought a new house with a double volume turret over the entrance. The entrance links the lounge and dining room and has the stairs down to the garages which are under the house. There is a curved wall approximately 1 metre high which prevents you falling down the stairs which goes to ground level. I am assuming that it has a suitable foundation.
I would like to floor the turret, to use the space as an office as i would get a great view of a nearby lake. Hheight is not an issue and there are windows in the upper section already.
What would be the easiest method of doing this, I had thought to raise the low wall to ceiling height which would provide support for one end of the beams and then to fix them to the wall with mounting plates.
I was considering using hardboard for the floor as it would be easy to profile to the turret shape.
When you are deciding how to remodel or build your home, house floor plansare perhaps the most important thing that you should consider. Of all the surfaces or parts of your home, your floors will need to withstand the most wear and tear and the most traffic. What you put on those floors is perhaps the most important decision that you can make when it comes to planning your home. Hope it hepls..Good luck
