This is the beamed ceiling in the Livng Room. The small square in the middle will be opened up and the dormer is directly overhead, providing light in both the Living Room and the Loft above.
Here's the view to the front.
And this is the view out the back of the house. The ocean is out there somewhere beyond the trees. The roof deck probably isn't high enough to see the ocean even after the leaves drop, but there's always hope.
