Attic of Awesome Update: Inspiration

This past weekend, my dad drove to the big city, picked up a hitchhiker on the way, and joined the Husband in the attic with a roll of wire and whatever other tools one uses to run electrical.

I puttered around in the garden.

We are still nicely on track. This weekend, together, they got the existing electrical re-run, so the existing wires were run through the floor joists instead of on top of them. They also had to move an existing switch off the wall we’re planning on taking down.

The hardest parts of the job are slowly getting finished. We can look around now and say, “Ah, subfloor will be down in just two weeks. And, once the subfloor is down? Is only a matter of a little drywall. We’re almost done.”

Drywall. And maybe a little beadboard. We’ll also have to make decisions about lights soon. Windows. Wall colour. Ceiling colour. Stairs – the material, the finish. 
Who am I kidding? We have so far to go yet.
But the hard parts, the structural stuff, the guts? Those are almost done. Or, at least, that’s what I like to think. 
Nine more weeks to go.

  1. Beautiful photos, I vote for white floors so I can vicariously live through you 🙂 PS> you can say that all the boring stuff is almost done and now its the fun things where you get to choose all the finishes 🙂

  2. This is so exciting, I can't wait to see how it all comes together.

    All of these inspiration posts are perfection! Are you thinking of going with a white to make it seem brighter? Skylights would be great in the room too? We had these paper shades on the skylights in our place in Toronto, and they were great!
