UPDATE 4: Drywall
Creating Walls in This Minneapolis Attic Remodel
Installing drywall in this unfinished Attic creates the walls and ceiling for the new living space that includes a Master Suite with a full Bath, sitting area, home office space, and concealed built-in storage. The new doorways will be drywalled to accommodate casing (wood trim). When remodeling a home, we always consider the existing architecture to create a design that is both beautiful and functional. This Attic has four dormers, that when drywalled will create dramatic angles and architectural interest. Once the walls are installed, taped, mudded, sanded, and primed we’ll move on to trim carpentry and painting.
Update the Attic & Keep the Home’s Character
The new white walls and vaulted ceiling have transformed this space. The sanded and primed drywall is already brightening up this formerly dark unfinished Attic. The intersecting planes and dramatic angles created by the existing roofline and beams give this new space a vintage-modern feel. This project is a great example of how you can balance creating an updated space inside an older home while also retaining some original character.
