With all the rain work has moved inside, primarily the attic. All the dirt and dust was vacuumed out and trash removed. We have tested the entire house for lead and unfortunately almost everything wood is covered in lead paint, so precautions must be taken to make sure it is all disposed of safely and correctly. Sammy has sealed off the attic so the dust stays put. He is using two Hepa Vacuums to make sure everything is filtered and no lead particles escape while sanding, plus we have an air scrubber and our helpers are wearing respirators. Better to be safe than sorry!
After days of sanding the wood is almost ready to repaint. There is still some prep work and some old damaged planks that need replaced but its getting there!
The stairs that lead up to the attic.
Awesome Sky Light!!
The miniature size door that opens to our cedar closet!!
The attic is one of the things I love most about this house. We have two little girls, with a third on the way, so we have lots of toys and need plenty of room to play. I imagine the attic as the perfect playroom, filled with natural light and bright fun colors, bean bag chairs and shelves of books. I can’t wait to show you my thoughts on the decor once it gets painted!
