The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

Well – the majority of what we want to finish construction wise is complete on the main floor. Roll up post to come on that. So I am moving on Up those stairs and getting my game plan set for the attic.  The girls will be sharing ~700 sq ft with their own bathroom.  I dropped some info into a room builder to play with layouts and I will start with this:

The plumbing lines were already run when I started on this version.  It was pretty easy to decide where the beds and desk would go based on the walls clustered together on one side of the room.  After some exploration, we found some issues with the plumbing that was roughed in.  Based on that knowledge we feel good about moving the bathroom to the center of the attic.  That aligns the plumbing lines with what is on the first floor and basement…..but it does make things more difficult for me in designing the room.

The bathroom will have the only ‘walls’ extending into the room.  I have decided to either use wooden slats or metal rods from floor to ceiling around the stairs to keep as much natural light flowing through the room as possible.  There are only a few furniture pieces that are must haves from the girls perspective:

  • 2 beds
  • 2 desks
  • 2 chairs
  • 2 toy chests
  • 1 set of cubbyholes
  • TV
  • bean bag chairs

Everything else is optional and I think we will keep it pretty minimal as a start to ensure that I do not over fill it!

Jules and Jane came to me with a plan – they would like the base color to be grey and white.  Then they can each pick another color to highlight what is theirs.  Jules would like blue or teal – Jane would like pink.  Color me surprised 🙂   We will pick and choose what from what we have and then do some bargain hunting at the stores we have locally.
