From Attic to Retreat
By Mark Jenkins
This 1950’s style home has balloon framing and boasts an attic with a lot of character. As the homeowner had a need for additional living space, the first thought was to add an addition. However, after exploring options, the final decision was to take this top level attic and create a retreat to include a full bathroom, bedroom, walk-in closet, living space and linen closet. The walls were painted with Sherwin Williams Repose Grey and finished with white trim.
