I recently posted about how I’m getting a new writing room in the soon-to-be finished attic. Of course, the whole space won’t be entirely devoted to my writing pursuits. It will also serve as a playroom, a room for others to pursue their creative talents, and a workout room. I only posted one picture and several of you asked for updates with more pictures, so here we go!
August 2013: Mostly empty attic. The green in the ceiling is spray foam insulation and you can see uncovered duct work and the loose boards that served as a floor.
April 2014: Similar view as above…now with subfloor finished, duct work hidden, and a half wall framed out around the staircase.
April 2014: Good look at the duct work, which will be hidden behind a knee wall. The spot with the toolbox and boxes and stuff will be a closet space.
More from April 2014: Pic with the framed knee wall.
April 2014: Framed wall and closet wall with stairway in view.
May 2014: Drywall up and ready to be painted soon, view from the top of the stairway.
May 2014: Drywall up, view from the other end of the room, looking toward the stairway.
That means painting comes next, and we already have the colors picked and the paint purchased. There was also a lot of behind the scenes work that you don’t see in the picture, like electrical and stuff. I can’t take credit for any of the work, though! The hubby has done a lot of it himself and we contracted some of it out, given the time constraint we’re under. What do you all think of the progress?
