The big drama, which we missed, has to do with the newel post for the new stair. See how it's nice and bulky? Unfortunately, it took up too much head height of the stair below. Which is against building regs.
You can't really tell from this picture, either, but you can see Kenny's head (on the stairs) an that the newel post comes down far too low.
At any rate, when we came home at the end of Week Three (sorry, not a lot of pictures...because we weren't there!) the loft conversion had gone from building site back to almost home. It was as nice transition.
