studio and observatory?

Mom is fantasizing about a friend's studio she visited recently. A small structure, formerly a car garage, the woman is using it in the warmer months as a cottagey studio space. Mom wants to make one of her own. She suggested that we could use it to store the telescope too.

At first it sounded a little crazy. But it makes sense. It would allow Mom to move projects out of the garage. Not a bad idea. And I won't complain about a permanent setup for a 'scope.

I sketched a rough plan for her with the telescope elevated to the loft of the studio. This frees up floor space and offers a better view of the surroundings.
