Construction is beginning TODAY on a very exciting project in our house. I’ve been planning this playroom since way before we moved into this house, and today is the day it begins.
We are finally going to finish out the unfinished attic space over our garage and turn it into an office for me and playroom for the kids. Yaaaassssss.
Here is the current 10×20 attic room:
PROPOSED SPACE TO BE FINISHED:
Mood Board for the finished room:
This is a way bigger job than we could ever dream to DIY, so I’ve hired a friend of ours who does this for a living to come in and handle it for us. He has a few other items on his to-do list around our house, but this is the biggest one.
So, this is what I have in my head for the room:
- Build in cubbies and cabinets under the knee-walls of the attic for toy and craft supply organization
- Add shiplap to the sloped ceiling and walls
- Build in a custom desk/ homework station along the end of the room
- Create a laundry chute connecting the 2nd floor hallway to the 1st floor laundry room using simple ductwork
- Cut in a half-size “secret” door from our son’s bedroom into the playroom using a solid core pre-hung door (This is a big MAYBE, depending on the space the laundry chute takes up!)
I’ve drawn up some elevations so you can see what I have in my head for this room.
Proposed Room Elevations:
Of course, I will be blogging about this entire process!
I cannot wait for the final reveal on this one. This space is MUCH needed in our home, since I am currently working from our dining room and the piles of clutter when you walk through the front door are bound to crush some unsuspecting door-to-door salesman one day.
With this room I can just shut the door and ignore all the piles o’crap! Woot!
Stay tuned for LOTS more pics to come!

Oh, Beth!!!!!! This is going to be so much fun to watch develop. I’ve got my studio in an attic dormer room, but no builtin’s as I rent. Can’t wait to see what magic you and the kids create here.
I was trying to make a mood board similar to the ones I saw on design show on netflix but didn’t know where to start. This video really helped me, thank you. I’ll check out the other post as well!
Thank you so much for providing good quality information. I think it would not have been easy to collect this information
It was a very good post indeed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it in my lunch time. Will surely come and visit this blog more often
It will be an absolute blast to watch the development. I have my studio set up located in an attic and no built-ins, as I lease. I can’t wait to see the magic you and your children create in this space.

I think this blog was very superficially and didn’t give any “meat” in regards to setting up the lights, working with the model
