Attic Renovation Dream Craft and Sewing Room Part 2: Updates Spray Foam and Drywall


Our attic after open cell spray foam
As I said in my last post, I've been busy working on our attic renovations lately.  When we bought our house 9 yrs ago it came with an unfinished attic that was perfect to finish off.  While most people would want to turn it into a master, I wanted to turn it into my dream craft/ sewing place.  We are actually going to turn almost our entire basement into our dream master retreat.  That's the next big project after this one.

Attic Renovation Dream Craft and Sewing Room Part 1: Design and Planning

Here is how our attic has looked for 8 yrs
When my husband and I bought our home 9 yrs ago we saw the unfinished attic and thought it would be perfect as my craft/ sewing studio and office space.  We put some fiberglass bats on the floor and basically never went up there again.  Last year we were planning on finishing the space, but a combination of family crisis's and the project being much bigger than I anticipated pushed it back until this summer.
