What a great way to support the wooden timber - it's ingenious.
The windows are exactly what I was thinking of using - big conservatory glass for the top, then an opening casement or swing type window below.
Bright lovely space; I can imagine how nice and warm this is in the winter from the passive solar heat.
Lovely bright room - what a view! I'm really partial to wood framed windows and hardwood floors. Like the baby, too.
Oh, what a view. Love it - I can imagine elk crossing the valley to eat all your hard won hay...
