It’s time to tackle the hardwood floors and finish carpentry in the Attic! Finish carpentry refers to final (mostly aesthetic) details like baseboards, railings, window trim, door casings, crown molding, etc. In this Attic remodel, all of the finish carpentry millwork items will be fabricated from maple.

The stairway railing, with white balusters and birds-eye maple handrails and newel posts (chosen by the homeowner as a tribute to her late husband), will give the space a Scandinavian modern aesthetic.

We selected solid red oak hardwood for the Attic floors to match the home’s main level. We also matched the Attic’s new interior doors to existing doors on the home’s main floor to create continuity.



We're ready to install the hardwood floor in the Attic hallway and Bedrooms.
Woodwork! The doors, window trim, door casings, baseboards, and floors in the weaving room are installed! The floors have been sanded and are ready for a Monocoat Natural Oil finish. Monocoat is a single-coat, plant-based, sustainable finish with 0% VOCs.
The hardwood flooring on the stair landing goes in.
The stair nose molding (a wood border installed on the staircase edge) is in! We're ready to install the railing.
The newel post and handrails, made of birds-eye maple, are complete. Next, we'll install balusters (vertical posts between the floor and handrail) to finish the railing.
The finished railing is a two tone composition with white balusters and natural maple handrails and newel posts.
The Dianorm panel radiator under the window saves space with its slim profile. The door at the top of the stairs leads to the dedicated storage space.

The hardwood floor is laid out in the new Attic Bedroom. We left the brick exposed on the existing chimney.
A wood transition finishes the floor near the chimney in the Attic Bedroom. The paint chips are potential wall colors inspired by the chimney brick.
