Before and After: An Airy Attic Office

The owner of a Queen Anne home in Florida decided that a home office might be the best choice for her small business. Her 700-square-foot attic space, which was recently featured in This Old House, seemed like the perfect fit, but it would require a lot of renovations. Her husband volunteered his services to realize her vision.

Here's how it looked prior to renovation.

To see how this attic was transformed,

The attic was gutted, and three new windows were added. Heart-pine floors picked up the light, and exposed rafters, which were painted white, gave the space an open, airy feel. The attic was rewired to accommodate seven work stations and high-tech equipment, and AC ducts were also installed — a necessity in steamy Florida. I also love the airplane propeller, which adds visual interest to the space.

Why can't the before picture be from the same vantage point as the after? That office looks great, but I really have no idea what the space looked like before based on that first picture.

This is such a nice office, I have to admit I don't like the propeller, but I would definitely feel inspired here. It's got this like very grounded feel because of the floor but the furniture is nice and modern.
