Wee House- Attic

Welcome to what is sure to be my favorite area in the house! I have some grand plans for our attic and can't wait to get started on them. Although, I'm going to have to wait, since plumbing and safe electrical wiring are a smidgen more important than my future library!! That's right, a library! My very own library. I can't tell you how excited I am to have this space for all my books and cushy reading area.
The vision I have in my head for the library is what keeps me going through the renovations sometimes. When I really need that burst of non cranky work time energy, I daydream about the library, and usually I perk back up.
Right now the attic holds about 4 things: a record player, bed springs, unidentified furniture and a mummified dead mouse. Everything, except the bed springs, is pretty cool. All the wood on the floor has been cut in random areas, we both think it was during a hack DIY electrician job. That annoys both of us on different levels. Me, I'm annoyed that they just cut right through all this old flooring and ruined it! My husband is a little more logical and is annoyed that they might have jacked up all the wiring. Making it harder for him to fix in the long run.

ETA: Sorry about all the random shots with just my disembodied hands floating around. I was enthusiastically throwing my hands into the air and the husband decided to cut his spastic then fiance out of the picture.


  1. Lucky! I would love to have my own library and an attic will be such a great space to create one...Can't wait to see.

  2. I swear I actually called Dibs on the attic when we did the walk through. It just seemed like the perfect space for my library.

  3. I would love my own library! I can see what it's going to be like now. It must be amazing to really be able to create your own home from the studs.
