|Here is how our attic has looked for 8 yrs|
|Our attic after I took all the fiberglass bats out spring/summer 2016|
|Attic after first day of construction (framing) We had them frame horizontally where possible to break the thermal bridge|
The Plan For Our Attic
- The space will be my sewing/ craft/ office space.
- Over all design look: Bright loft where scandanavian style meets glamour
- It will have a cathedral ceiling with exposed white sheet rock beams that have white led dimmable track lights at the top of the beam to create more head room
- Built in dressers in the knee walls on the side with HVAC to make the most of the space (since vents take up alot of space in the back)
- Access to the whole space of knee walls on the other side with rolling louved doors and a hanging rod
- Cat cave (yes our cat is spoiled)/ storage space in our big space that you ave to bend down to walk into (pictured below).
- It will house his litter box. I can't wait to get it out of the kitchen which is the only place we can out it because we have carpeting everywhere.
- I think I will make a cat tunnel house out of big boxes I've kept for him along with a comfy cat bed.

We ended up hiring a contractor to frame, create the built in storage, sheet rock, mud and tape, priming with vapor barrier paint, patch sub floor put in a thin sub floor above our existing to create a even surface for flooring install, build stair walls to code, railing to code, and trim and moldings. I provided the plans for the city and obtained the permit and have been scheduling inspections. I hired out Electrical, HVAC, and Spray Foam. The DIY projects we plan to do is painting our existing windows that are bare wood white to match out trim and reglazing them (I am currently working on that), painting, and installing vinyl plank flooring.
So if you've been wondering why there have been no new posts, it's because I've been pretty busy planning this and working on my Etsy shop Ornute. So hopefully this spring I can start to post more regularly. :)
