It looks great. I hope it is safe. Im no structural engineer but it looks like the beams are attached with the sheetrock still in place. I would imagine the chalky interior of the sheetrock would compress and shift over time, making the floor framing less stable. I am also wondering if it is supported from the bottom. The walls it is attached to may not have the support to hold that up over the years without it. Sure, its current use it is probably going to be fine, but 10-15 years from now if someone decides to put something heavy in that space such as a library, piano or simply a large adult or two using it daily, and i worry about its structural integrity.
