So without further ado!
Looking up the attic stairs before.
After. Ben cut a hole in the wall and put a piece of sonotube in to make a little window. I can stand at the bottom of the stairs (two floors down) and see the window.
I can't show you this view after since there is a wall in front of where Ben is sitting. But you get an idea of the height.
It's kind of hard to get all the angles, so I took a couple so you can can get a feel. Just ignore the smudges :-)
The paint was leftover from our front hall and the carpet was a remnent from a local carpet place here in town. I love the feel of a shag carpet, so this little piece helps fill that need without regretting a huge room full of it. :-)
P.S. Those are the beanbags I made for the girls for Christmas. They've seen a lot of use already!
