Chevy Chase DC Attic Remodel

Description

This family had been living in their Chevy Chase DC home as their children grew up, but they are now busy young teenagers.  The parents wanted more space for them to spread out and not always be in the family room off of the kitchen.  They decided their 1,110 sq. ft. unfinished attic space would be the perfect area.

We created three large distinct rooms out of the 1,100 sq. ft. space: a guest bedroom, activity room, and media room. We also added a bathroom and two study nooks. As you ascend the stairway to this third floor space, you enter a large bright activity room that is currently used by their daughter for her photography hobby. Full light double doors with tempered glass separate the activity room from the adjacent media room, which the teens use to view TV and movies and play video games. The only window in the media room is a small oval unit in the dormer. To bring more natural light into the space, we added four skylights, a window and modified one of the dormers.

Adjacent to the media room is a guest bedroom –great for family and friends who are visiting. Adding a full bathroom allows the space to operate as an independent suite. In addition to the three main rooms and bathroom, there are two work/study nooks. We created a comfortable and energy-efficient space by upgrading to R-36 insulation in the roof joists.
