Attic renovation




When we purchased our house in 2000, it had a main floor and a partial basement. We had two bedrooms and 2 baths- one on each floor. At the time I was pregnant with my third and we had family in and out of our basement (poor Liz, Cammie and Charla!) We started work right away on our attic. It was rafters and bird nests at the time! Now it has a bathroom, a bedroom and a "Living Area" that the boys use as their bedroom. We are almost done! We have spent a fortune, redone a lot, hired and fired and lost half a fortune, but we are almost done! We have learned a ton too. So Cammie, here are the pictures you requested. I would have included the "during phase", but those pictures aren't accessible and I don't want to remember too vividly what a mess it was! We would loved to have done a bit more... Maybe if we win the Lottery (though I would need to start playing).

Wow it looks so great! The sky lights make all the difference don't they. So bright and cheery. What a fun kid space.

Finally! I love it and can't wait to see it in real life! I thought I was at anthropologie.com --I really like the exposed brick with the delicate beds and dressers. :o)

I'd say it was worth the work. It really looks great. Love the metal bed, love the cast iron bath, love the slanted walls. My husband is getting ready to start remodeling our house and I'm scared, but If I can get results like that I'm in.
