After literally years of debate, we are finally giving up city living in favor of a real house — complete with front and back yards, a porch, and even an attic space. The house is a small two-story gem, built in 1920. One of the things we loved about it instantly was the potential of the third floor. The previous owner used the space as an eclectic workroom — compete with ping pong table, decoupaged maps, and crystal chandelier (see top photo). What the space didn’t have: good insulation, modern wiring, or storage space. So we are undertaking our first house renovation project: an attic renovation! We did tons of seplaceing online for images and inspiration — and found little to none. So we are sharing ours in hopes it will help you. The first step was ripping everything out; it was sad, because we know there was a lot a history in that room, but it had to be done. It only took one day! Then the contractors began framing up the new space. As you can see from above, the house has great bones. Our plan is divide the floor into bedroom/hangout place and some much needed closets. Next up: foam insulation. More soon! — Angela M.
