The attic is finished. Yes, finally. I remember writing about it a few times. Maybe a few images here and there. I had high hopes of doing it myself. I even wrote that I would finish in a month. Ha! After two years we hired a contractor and they finished in 5 weeks. We love it. I will give a bit of a run down of the project in a few posts, mostly images. The attic was a large open room with shallow ceilings when we moved in. The revamped project now includes a walk in closet, a kind of walk in closet, master bedroom and full bathroom. It is amazing. So here we go.....

Here it is when we first moved in. I thought I had better images than these. If I find them I will post them.

main area, larger then this image shows

far side of room looking at entrance (stairs), closet at right
The following images are of my work before the contractor.

removed wall to create more depth in the room

removed knee wall/bookshelf to open up space
began placing the studs

going to raise the ceiling in the bathroom to 9 feet

bathroom is coming together

and we have 9 feet
this was as far as I was able to get
I know that was probably confusing. The awful carpet was the first to go also. This project went in spurts for the past two years and that led to the decision to hire a contractor. Be back soon with more.
