Q&A with Green Men Restoration: Attic Transformation

Q: What was the main challenge in transforming the attic?

A: The main challenge was to modernize the attic while maintaining the home’s historical integrity. The attic was initially a dusty storage area with poor insulation, outdated electrical systems, and a lack of natural light. Our goal was to turn this underused space into a cozy retreat that could serve multiple functions.

Q: What was the vision for the new attic space?

A: Our vision was to create a cozy retreat that could function as a guest room, home office, and recreational area. We wanted to respect the home’s architectural heritage while offering all the comforts of modern living. The aim was to make the attic inviting, functional, and visually appealing.

Q: How did you address the access and structural issues?

A: We installed a proper staircase to ensure easy and safe access to the attic. The structure of the attic was reinforced to support its new uses, making it a stable and secure part of the home. This was a crucial step in integrating the attic seamlessly with the rest of the house.

Q: What improvements were made in terms of insulation and lighting?

A: We added energy-efficient insulation to make the space comfortable year-round. Several skylights and dormer windows were installed to flood the area with natural light, enhancing the airy feel of the attic. These improvements were key to transforming the attic into a livable space.

Q: Can you describe the interior design choices?

A: To make the attic feel inviting, we opted for light colors to paint the walls and ceilings, which helped to expand the space visually. The original wooden floors were restored and treated to match the home’s historical vibe. We furnished the space with a mix of modern and vintage pieces, striking a balance between old and new.

Q: What was the result of the attic transformation?

A: The once-forgotten attic is now a beloved top-floor retreat that offers breathtaking views and versatile living space. The remodel not only adds significant value to the home but also preserves its historical essence. The transformation is documented in our before-and-after video, showcasing the dramatic changes.
