One of the big selling points of the house on West Street was an unfinished, walk-up attic. We also wanted to make changes to the roofing, but we have decided to do it one project at a time. As the planned future home of Jen’s business studio, we have been very busy getting the attic remodel underway. Sorting out the remodel for a section of your house can often times be quite difficult, so if you are thinking about getting some work done, then you might want to check out more info on this year (and how people go about remodeling). We have chosen to do the work ourselves, but that’s not always possible for everyone. If there is a part of your house you want to remodel but can’t do it yourself, you will need to invest in a reliable construction team to do the work for you.
The permit is hanging in our window and work has begun:
These pictures show how the studio first looked…..soon things would become very messy! In the end, however, we are looking at adding just over 400 square feet to the house!
Graham’s family came down to help — while the ladies worked on repainting the kitchen, the boys worked on the framing for the studio.
(old wood windows)
(new energy efficient windows — yay for tax credits!)
After he was done with most of the framing and electrical work, Graham installed our brand new windows.
Graham is finishing up some of the electrical this week and then the inspector will pay us a visit! Assuming all goes well, we will begin insulating (which is a very good thing as the snow is falling quite heavily today!!).
