Do you have an attic that you want to be renovated? This attic renovation didn’t turn out the way we’d think of it.
Some homes are blessed with an attic but sometimes they do not know that it is actually a blessing. Why?
Because it can be used as an extended space for another living room, bedroom, workspace and just whatever you can think of. But of course, it needs to undergo a major makeover and not everyone is capable of doing that.
There is one guy who, instead of leaving his attic a home for rats and clouds of dust, he made use of the space and transformed it into a boat cabin.
Well, this guy has a creative mind because instead of merely turning it into a storage area or a simple bedroom, he opted to turn it into a cabin of a boat which made it really appear like one. You’d be impressed by the DIY skills of this man once you see how the boring attic turned out!
This ladder leads to the previous entrance of the attic.
And this is what the attic looks like.
The roof beams were manipulated by modifying the angles but if you are not confident of doing it on your own, make sure to ask help from an expert.
Wooden panels were added to create a clean wall. Insulators were added too to stabilize the temperature.
A new entrance was created on this side of the wall.
The whole in the wall was turned into an entrance for the attic. First, it was a panel door but he decided to change it into a sliding door to save more space. Note the nautical window attached to it.
A roof window was added too to allow more light to the attic.
Aside from a door and a window, the stairs were fabricated too.
