First, maybe watch more video's from Louet on the David Loom. Louet has an amazing video on how to assemble the David loom and I found it extremely useful. In fact I watched it a couple times. It also enforced that I needed help to assemble and to pick my location for weaving too. I selected my upstairs bedroom, next to a window and can watch the palm trees, big blue skies of Arizona.
Second, the access to the "treadles" is amazingly easily with a David....just remove the front beam bar (as Jane showed in her video). I use a stool to sit inside or sit on floor with a cushion. I actually found it easier to access the treadles than any of the floor looms at my guild.
Third. Connect with Louet either thru their website or on Facebook for help will all your concerns. I had to reach out a few times during assembly and they were all amazing. I also watch Jane's video about the David Loom a few more times too. It's amazing how much I missed....
Finally, I did a practice project based on Jane's Season 2, Episode 2 Asymmetry with my yarn before I start with the Kits for Season 2. I wowed my neighbors. and myself. Working the treadles, different pressure on beating, moving the shuttle , doggie go home and selvedges was my big focus. When unsure of about "how to" ran to my iPad to rewatch Jane.
This weekend I rewatched Season 1 Video Asymmetry and Season 2 Color & Weave Gamp Sample 2 - Episode 2.4 and more "lights went off". I was feeling little overwhelmed rewatching but my neighbor who's a big sewer, stitcher etc told me she watches some videos up to 10 times to learn.
As I said in first message, my biggest challenge is understanding the patterns. and By George I think i Got it".
