Slight design flaw

Measure twice, cut once, as the saying goes.

Baseboard construction is under way but flooring the attic has taken precedence as, well, no floor, no layout. So I thought I'd just measure out the attic space to see how the layout will fit.

It doesn't. I'd previous measured the floor area, but (of course) much of the floor goes under the eves of the house and isn't really usable as floor space. I have about 1 metre less in three directions, so the layout as planned won't fit.

As it happens, I've only started on the four main boards, which will fit, so these will the the total extent of the layout. It's back to XtrkCAD to jiggle the plan while losing 600mm at either end.

If I'm making such a stupid error now, Lord knows what other daft mistakes will be made along the way.

Watch this space...
