Attic Update 4: The Bunk

The attic insulation is finally done.  It's been a journey...that's for sure!

Before we start hanging drywall, there are a few smaller jobs we're planning on tackling.  One of those smaller jobs is the built-in bunk.  We've got it all framed out & wired for a reading light already.  The last thing we need to do to finish it is to nail up pine planking & paint it.  The only problem with that is that the roof inside the nook is slightly uneven.  (See how that black tape line slightly curves up on the right?  The ceiling is maybe a half of an inch low in the middle of the bunk, which would make the paneling wonky where the ceiling meets the wall...as in, the line between the paneling would be crooked...not good.)  Thus, we have to level things out before we install the planks.

That's what dad's working on now!  (Excuse the grainy iphone pic...it's all I had on me!)

Hopefully by this weekend we'll be ready to start nailing up those planks!  :)

I'm envisioning something like this: (A twin mattress will fit on the platform.)


  1. I can't wait to see how it turns out - it looks like such a cute use of the space! I would have loved something like that as a kid.

    1. I too would have loved it as a kid! I can't wait to have a little cozy reading nook to share with Grady!
