We have a walk up attic that is insulated and has some drywall up but is mostly unfinished.We do currently use the attic as an art space and storage.
If I moved my bedroom to the attic we could then have an office/school room.This could get the computer out of my small living room and the school books and constant projects out of my small dining room.It would also cut down on the back and forth with all my daughter's supplies since we keep most of her art supplies in the attic but do a lot of her projects in the dining room.Also I currently have a very small bedroom(about 9x8)with no closet.The attic would give me a lot more room although it sure wouldn't be pretty.
My bedroom also houses the only tv we have.We don't watch a whole lot of tv but sometimes.So that would also need to happen in the attic.
The attic is warm enough in the winter without any extra heating.In the summer though it is unbearably hot so I would have to run an air conditioner if not two.
So,ugly,HOT,dirty,attic bedroom in exchange for a more useful home?yay or nay?
