Unfinished Attic Turned Master Suite
The owners of this 1900 Victorian home desired to use their unfinished attic space to create a master suite. They wanted the space to feel comfortable and not cramped, as attics can sometimes feel. In order to accomplish this, the sagging roof structure was rebuilt and reinforced from the inside. Large, beautiful wood beams add additional support while allowing the vaulted ceiling to stay intact. The owners ended up with a gracious living area, a bathroom, a reading nook with built-in shelves, and a bedroom, all with the open, airy feel they wanted. Photo by Brit Amundson.
