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.

Precious and adorable! I am considering adding an eyebrow over an entry porch that I want to put on a house built sometime before 1887 in St. Andrews Florida. I will probably add an eyebrow dormer later. I am in the process of buying the house, and I saw your wonderful photo! Thanks for sharing!

We can't find a specific color in the specs. Paint is funny like that; it's often decided 'in the field' or over internal correspondence that is quite difficult to track down years later. In other words, it's almost always specified as TBD in the finish schedule.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Off the Beaten Path: Delightful Alcove Spaces
A place for the bed is carved out of the leftover space under roof, while the eyebrow dormer adds joyous light to this bedroom. In a child's room, placing the bed in the alcove frees up the main area for play.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Unearth Your Attic
AFTER: The main design goal was to add the teenager's bedroom to the upstairs without changing the home's cottage style. Davis and his team extended the sloped roof up higher, then used a curved "eyebrow" dormer to keep the addition within the frame of the house.
