It looks like one of those TV shows around here, because we're also finishing the electrical, plumbing and carpentry! Never a dull moment around here. I've been hoarding the light fixtures in the basement for months - we finally get to see them installed! LOVE!
And now that the barn doors are hung, they look fantastic.
The first room finished? The front upstairs bedroom. This is a totally new room, out of the former attic space. As a reminder, here's the 'before' space. We did a lot of structural work to reframe the space and give us a lot of ceiling height. We also installed new egress windows, to meet new building codes. Don't you love all the angles and sunshine streaming through the windows and skylight?
We tried to use every cubic inch of space and included lots of lighted closets. Or as a mom of young children told me - the best hide and seek space ever! And thanks to the foam insulation we did throughout the second floor, they will be nice and comfortable, winter and summer.
Still lots to do - but we're getting close to the finish line!!! What do you think?
