This American Craftsman style home was in need of expanded living space. A Monk’s Project Manager met with the homeowners to discuss an attic renovation. The Project Manager created a plan to create two bedrooms, a lounge, and a full bathroom. Over the course of the next four months our team converted an unfinished attic to an entire floor of functional living space.
Attic Renovation Morristown
It was important to the homeowner’s that we continue to carry through the style of the home up to the attic. Our carpenters would model the new details, such as hardware and moldings, after the home’s craftsman style.
To begin this project the Project Manager brainstormed ideas for the layout with the homeowners. In order to obtain a permit, however, an architect would need to draw up the plans to be submitted to the township. Once the plans were approved, we began to map out the future location of the walls using painters tape. Then we began framing out the walls for the new rooms.
We brought in licensed electricians and plumbers to assist with the renovation. Monk’s manages the timeline and coordinates these trades.
Closed cell polyurethane insulation was sprayed along the roof and exterior walls. This brought the older home up to code to allow for the remodel.
Next, we sheetrocked, taped, and spackled the new walls. For energy efficiency, we installed new windows. We also installed new oak interior doors to match the look throughout the rest of the home. Then, we primed and painted all the new walls and rooms.
To keep the integrity of the home’s aesthetics the homeowners wanted to stick with the existing pine floors. Our team protected these floors, and then proceeded with our proven dustless floor refinishing system.
We built new window casings and door casings to add detail to the newly renovated living space. Our team built all oak molding to match the the rest of the house.
Besides the closets in each bedroom, our team also created a custom built in shelving unit for the newly renovated attic.
Monk’s Home Improvements transformed this Morristown attic from a storage space, to a stylish living space. See all the before, during, and after photos of this attic remodel here.
