A Renovation Decades in the Making: Before

Who: Terence H.
Where: Oconomowoc, WI

This attic was originally finished in the 1960s to be a master bedroom. The contractor dated and signed the back of a piece of molding, which we discovered during the demo. My parents bought the house in 1983, and this room served as my bedroom in high school. Back then, the room had no heat or air-conditioning. I ran an electric space heater in the winter and slept on our enclosed front porch during the summer, when the room was uninhabitable. My wife and I bought the house from my mom in 2002.
