Attic Conversion to Bedroom

This whole-house renovation was featured on the 2008 Austin NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes. The attic space was converted into a bedroom with closet space and bath, cooled by a minisplit system. An eyebrow window was cut into the roofline to allow more daylight into the space, as well as adding a nice visual element to the facade.

Photography by Greg Hursley, 2008

Thank you. Yes. It's a very nice effect. It just seems to me there's more purple than the teddy bear would reflect, which is why I thought the paint colour, brand, etc., would be useful information. It's a very beautiful room!
