It seems right, just make sure you're not adding any nulls there because that will yield unexpected results.

Just to play it safe you can use:

DECLARE @sqlmiddle NVARCHAR(MAX)
DECLARE @loop2 INT = 1

WHILE (@loop2 < = (Select count(*) from #SomeTable))
      BEGIN
            set @sqlmiddle = @sqlmiddle + ISNULL(somethingINTable,'')
            SELECT @loop2 = @loop2 + 1
      END
