"Disadvantages are very
few," Szczechowski continued,E
"except for hitting your head.1
We've got a score sheet for head
bopping. I hit my head 73 times
in the first four months. No
one's ever been 'cut, but some-
times you feel the bumps for a
couple of days."'
SZCZECHOWSKI anticipates'
difficulty in selling his loft next
year. The University has in-'
structed him and other loft
owners in his wing to dismantlec
the structures so the rooms can'
be painted this summer.
"A few friends of mine might I
ask the building director if we'
could paint the room ourselves,
but I don't think he'll let us."
he said. "It'll probably end upr
as firewood."'
"To me," said Tom Schwarz'
of Markley, "the loft has justj
made it a hell of a lot nicer to'
live here. These rooms are so
. well, just concrete. We've,
got a couch and tables in here,

it's nicer to party in and'there's
a lot more room."
SCHWARZ'S structure is a.
prime example of loft construc-j
tion. Its floor, walls and ceiling
are carpeted and cost him and
his roommate a hefty $300.
"Leroy (Williams, Markley
Bailding Director) has brought
a lot of people from the housing
departnent around. They pret-l
ty much agree it's the nicest
loft here" Schwarz said. "The
guys who built it did a terrific
job. They came about a weekI
before school strated with just
crates of wood. I never have to
worry about it crashing in the
night."
However, that hasn't always.
been the case. Williams, the
Markley building director, -told
this story: "In the last couple
of years (lofts) have become
overly popular. Looking at some
of them, I couldn't help but won-
der how they could support
bodies.
"IT WAS THE end of the
school year ,and we were check-
ing rooms for damages. I was

under a loft. I heard a crack,
quickly backed up from under-
neath it, and it crashed. The
tenants had stored bricks up
on top."
Although Williams said there
have been no loft-related injur-
ies yet, he urges implementa-
tion of a University-wide policy
to ensure students' safety.
Such a policy is already in its'
final stages of preparation and
may be implemented is soon as
next fall, according - to Paul
Bowyer, University coordinator
of housing maintenance.
"Our policy,' he said, "is ba-
sically one of information. There
is nothing that says 'You shall
not, for ever and ever, have a
loft.'
According to Bowyer, the
policy states that the loft wood
should have no greater burning
{ capacity than Douglas fir, and*
the rug should have no greater
capacity to catch fire than wool
carpeting.
The recommendations, Bow-
yer said are geared to the safe-
ty of loft owners and their

neighbors. One recommendation
requires each room with a loft
be equipped with a smoke de-
tector, because of the flamma-
bility of he wood. Bowyer points
out that in the event of a fire,
the smoke and fumes would rise
to the ceiling.
HE SAID the policy would
also protect -the potential loft
buyer from "having someone
come along and say, 'Hey, -
we're going to take this loft out
because. we're using the build-
ing this summer.'
"The guy comes back in the
fall thinking he has a loft, but
there's no loft there," Bowyer
continued.
That won't be a big problem,
according to Schwarz. Although
Markley is scheduled for use
this summer, he and his room-
mate have arranged for some-
one to buy their loft. "It won't
be the end of the world," he
said, "just a big pain in the ass
taking it down, finding some-
where to store it over the sum-
mer, and putting it back togeth-
er again in the fall."
