This is the close up of how high the attic wall would have been. You can see where I added the extension here:
This is the way the stairs & fireplace originally look.
I decided to add an extra wood storage shelf I also added stones on the fireplace:
After that I started trying to figure out where to add the porch light. I found out that the area is too tight to add a light next to the door but, you can add the light above the door.
I also wanted to make a pointy tower roof as i had with my Pierce that I built last year so I did this by cutting wood in long triangle shapes to make the roof pointy I would have added a weather vane but decided that a tower cap would look good to.
