We have an attic that is easy to access with a drop down staircase. We keep holiday bins up there, luggage, old files, Katie’s stuff, and some of Dear’s parents memorabilia. We also have our kids old toys that we drag down when we have little ones visiting.
Looking down from the attic to our main floor.
The space has a very low ceiling and a wood floor that gives us splinters when we crawl around up there. We decided to organize and to put some inexpensive outdoor/indoor carpeting on the floor.
The process begins. Wiring also needed to be moved and tucked away.
The new carpeting installed and the bins organized.
An inexpensive project that will make our lives easier every time we head up those attic stairs to access our seasonal stuff.
Do you have an attic? How do you access it? In the meantime Dear is busy on another outdoor project and he had some interesting company today.
Can you see the wild bunny?
Update on our attic space. Many of you suggested this would be a fun place for kids. Here’s the first kid to enjoy our newly carpeted attic space. She and Andrew are here today waiting for the arrival of our kids from the East.
Her Awana shirt still fits from her elementary days!
Happy Saturday everyone!
It’s Thursday morning and the sun is shining right now but we have a small system moving through later. I wanted to show you some photos of our attic now that I have everything back up there.
Lots of stuff but we still have half the floor space up there vacant…she pats herself on the back.
On to our outdoor progress…
These are before and after looks at the side yard.
Yesterday the gravel and the concrete blocks arrived. After the gravel was delivered I headed out for a walk.
I took a new route today heading straight down a very busy street so I could photograph some unusual yard art that I’ll show next Thursday. After photographing I headed back up the hill and spotted something I wasn’t thrilled about…
This coyote was across the street looking at me. Yikes! Thankfully the traffic was very busy and he couldn’t make it across the street until I was well past him.
Looking back he’s still waiting for a good opportunity to cross…
I’ve got to say that this is my preferred sighting on any given day! A pretty Robin doesn’t make me nervous.
Back at the homestead the big boulders have been moved and set in their new home. We’ll clean up around them later.
The block arrived and the wall is going in at a good pace. We should see a lot of progress today.
Hope your Thursday goes well for you!
