Progress on the attic has been continuing over the past couple weeks. I’m learning that even the smallest details take so long to accomplish. Especially since we are working from ‘nothing’. We have a general plan on what the finish project should look like but none on the small steps laid out in detail.
Anyway, here are some of the things that were accomplished last week.
See the large strip of floor missing? Well, we accidentally cut into a gas line we thought was empty. This was the old gas line that ran into all the bedrooms to provide gas to the old lights in the house. After we cut into this line we had to quickly tear down one of the wall we built to access the pipes to seal off the line. Crisis averted. The two small boxes on either side of the window are little built-in behind the main wall. They will hold my wine cooler and a mini-fridge. It’s tough to see, but we all began the process of running electricity. See the wires?
On the right…the large opening… is the beginning of another built-in. This will be a space for me to tuck my TV and related equipment into the wall. This way I won’t have to take up any floor space for that equipment! Good idea, huh?
