This was a small dark space. The roof flattened out and made the space feel very claustrophobic. The paint job was, well, HORRIBLE!
The first thing we did was remove the flat portion of the ceiling. We installed a dividing wall and a set of french doors we found in the garbage down the street.
is picture is looking into the remodeled space from the french door entry. Here you can see the open ceiling, the box beams we constructed, and the installation of a skylight over the bed to open the space and bring in light.
Here you can see the new skylight. We trimmed it out to match the trim style of the windows and door in our house. The skylight cranks open to let in fresh air.
