The Attic

13882504_10210295058761144_1181105195605208738_nWe 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.

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.
