Sorry for the delayed post! The hurricane came and went and we have slowly been working on the attic. We need to have it finished in time for my family to come visit in late December (we will need a guest space up there). Brian has been working on the storage closets and he built some built-in bookshelves with additional storage space behind them (hooray!). He also finished hanging the paneling on the ceiling. Here are some pictures of the progress (please ignore the hot mess in the background…we are waiting to organize until after the saw dust is cleaned up and the painting is finished):
Our next steps will be to finish the trim work and caulking over the gaps and such, and to stain the new paneling to try to match the darker wood that was already in place, and then I want to white-wash all of it. Then, we want to get carpet installed.
On Saturday we finished staining the paneling!
