How to Renovate an Attic Bonus Room

Written by Matthew C. Keegan  //  2011/11/24  //  Attic , Home Improvement  //  No comments


Homeowners who are pressed for space, but not desiring to change the footprint or size of their home, should look up. As in their attic space. Most homes have attics and most attics can accommodate at least one room, a bonus room of sorts that can add value and living space to any room.
