We have the Cutest room above our garage we call our attic room. It is a good size unfinished space with adorable dormer windows. I love this room and for the past 2 years, this has served as an extra storage area where we left unpacked boxes, unused decor, and my craft supplies. Not gonna lie, its kind of resembled a hoarders room. :) Enter our current home project: Remodeling Attic Room!Here are some befores of how its looked these past 2 years.
We originally planned to work on refinishing this room into a den/office/spare bedroom area this summer. As with most plans, my bedrest and pregnancy limitations made this a little difficult. I knew there was no way I could get this room cleaned out to start work. Luckily, my mom and sister came out last month and went through this whole room top to bottom! (Thank heavens for family!)
They helped organize and sift through unwanted items and moved my craft supplies, extra decor, and unused items to the basement and gave away the rest.
With the room all emptied, we were able to start the next step! My Brother in Law came out and started on some electrical and framing out a good walk in closet.This is seriously the cutest shaped room ever. I love the window areas, I am picturing window seats with upholstered cushions, or bean bags for kids reading nooks. :)
We've still got lots of work ahead of us. I was hoping this room would be done before baby comes...but I am thinking it will take a bit longer! We are currently working to get a ac/heat system put in. That's kind of holding us up for now. Its a bit tricky to tap into our current system and with this rooms weird temperatures from being above the garage its proving challenging to find an affordable workable option. As soon as we get that figured out and put in we will finish insulation and drywall.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our current project and stayed tuned for more updates! I have several "attic" room ideas pinned on pinterest I am using for inspiration you should check out!
