Table and chairs,
bench seating, pillar and radiator,
and a quiet corner.
The front (without a slope on the laneway):
And again, with a slope:
Which to chose?
On one hand, I like the idea of using the window sills as a ledge to support the table tops (possibly having them hinged so they can be put away at night. Which I couldn't do if I added a slope to the laneway:)
On the other hand, I suspect having the added detail of the slope will add an extra 'zing' to the look of the final piece...
I'll continue to mull the decision over while I work on some other things.
