Chi Omega Dorm Room #6: Singles Finished

04-05-2008 at 08:40 AM by Chris Davis | 7 comments »

I had a request or two on how I made the Combination Loft. I was going to scan my notes and email them to the LJ but thought why not share with everyone. First remember these were intended for me so they may not make since to anyone else. I am posting it here so there can be dialogue back and forth. I’ve built this version two times. One time in white and the other time in the pine version. This is some dimensions to show the side panels Here are some more overall dimensions. ...
