I Can See Clearly Now

Sort of. The attic windows, known as Vélux in France, are now installed. The interior finishing still needs to be done. The contractors will do that soon enough. But the windows are in and they make a big difference in the look and feel of the attic space. Vélux is the brand name of the windows, but most windows of this type end up being called Vélux. It's kind of like Kleenex and tissues.

The gaps in the walls are where closet doors will go. The vertical bars are supports for the radiators.

The guys are taking a week off from our job to work on another, so we have time to do some work of our own. Like taking down the wallpaper in the hall. Ugh.


  1. Wow! Looks fantastic! Now it's a room, not an attic.

  2. Can't wait to see how it will look; it all went so fast. Have fun with Alex and Leesa!

  3. Beautiful! What will you use this room for again?

  4. Walt, those will be good closets:)) It all looks so spacious!


  5. Wow - it looks great! What a transformation.

  6. When I saw this picture and those open spaces, I was thinking what a wonderful place to put storage space. It's really starting to look like living space now.

  7. Good luck with the wallpaper! Your new room is beautiful!

  8. Wow!
    This is going to be an amazing space. You will be 2 lucky guys & a canine!

  9. cheryl, it's getting there!

    nadege, we've still got a ways to go. There's no stair yet; we have to get up via ladder.

    suzanne, it will be a big combo bedroom, tv room, and office.

    judy, it's about 65 square meters!

    diogenes, I'll have to do a set of before/after shots.

    starman, we can't wait to start moving in. It's like a new house.

    evelyn, thanks!

    stephen, we're really looking forward to it.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
