second floor balcony like this - not curves
Alternative stairwell design here if large semicircular opening is not feasible in remodel
Consider bui2t-in computer desk in northwest corner of second story, at end of balcony, just west of North Bedroom.
Consider post construction like this if more structure support is required where stairwell is opened up in 1860's farmhouse.
Created a platform in void space of the curve to accommodate a decorative object or plant
Do stonework on the vertical wall of the stair well !!! To match exposed stone in kitchen !!!
Need more structural support for two story stairwell? Consider two framing uprights like this...
