Q: Do you install or how do we put it together?
Asked by: Sheila - 10/30/2018
A: I would like you all too build it but I do not want the particle plywood that's glued together. I want real plywood that's treated not that glued wood. That way it will last 50 years. I'm on disability. I get $1200 dollars a month and I have 5 acres of land paved for clear title in hand so I don't see a problem financing it with about 10.000 down. Yes it will be on a concrete slab. Also I want the runners underneath it also. I just haven't found the size I want as of yet

Answer provided by:  scott (11/15/2018)
A: We have found that customers are far more successful at getting more competitive local assembly/installation rates if you join a local Facebook classifieds group and create a post like, "Looking for a licensed and insured handyman to assembly my ......." You are likely to get several competitive bids eliminating the middle man.

Q: Is the sample picture with the lady standing in the loft to scale? Or can you modify to make the height of the loft taller? That looks a lot more than 73" where she is standing?
Asked by: Edie - 10/9/2018
A: I interpreted it as 73" from the floor of the loft to the peak of the roof. So, 73" would not include the first floor height. That is my take on it.
