Out With The Old

This Attic transformation is underway! It took about a week to demo this Minneapolis Attic. The wall materials and insulation were removed, exposing the framing. In the existing Bath, we disposed of the tile, fixtures, cabinets, tub, and countertops. We removed the old Bath skylights and filled the gaps to match the rest of the roof. The Attic’s remaining windows were also removed, and the openings covered with plywood until it’s time to install new windows.


We covered the exterior deck stairs with a layer of OSB particle board to protect them from the heavy traffic in and out of the house during the remodeling process.
The carpet on the stairway to the Attic will be removed and the stairs will get new wood treads.
A temporary corridor created with plastic protects the rest of the house from dust and debris created during the demo process.
We pulled down and disposed of the old insulation.
The old Bathroom was taken down to the studs, and the skylights removed.
The original remodel design included a shed dormer, but keeping the Attic's existing roofline saved money in the budget.
