Here you can see the edge of the beam just resting on the wall. When it's finally glued in, I'll be able to fill in the space underneath it and spackle over the edge of it, so it won't be noticed after the outside is done.
Before I had glued on the exterior living room wall, I cut it in half. Why, I don't know. But it occurred to me afterwards that I could extend the bedroom wall the same as the living room wall if I reattached it. However, I am leaning more to changing the house back to a French cottage and having a little balcony over the living room extension, using the original bedroom doorway as an access.
I'm also not sure whether I want to fill in this window or not. My original plan had been to fill it in and then install a floor to ceiling bookcase across the extension. But seeing the window there....hmmm, I have to think about that one a little bit more.
