-Ok. This is the big one. I think we're finally makin' moves to finish the attic: This is not a project of skill as much as it is a project of devotion. My plan is to install horizontal bead-board throughout the entire room, build a wall to divide the sleeping space from the storage space, and then install a railing around the stairwell so Jules, the dog, and any inebriated friends of ours don't fall down the hole unwittingly. It's kind of a bummer about the storage space/ sleeping space division, because the whole attic is really lovely as a whole, but let's be serious. 25% of the reason city people have country houses is the storage space. If we didn't have this attic for hiding our "old baby clothes/insane amount of mismatched frames/random pieces of wood/bonkers collection of windows and doors", we'd be lost. Or we'd have to rebuild the barn.
|I hate this chimney. Sorry this is such a terrible photo,|
but literally, I hate this chimney so much, I don't have
any photographs of it. I'm avoiding it. We're estranged.
