Three REASONS to convert this attic space into a family-room/playroom.
1.I am a widowed mom raising 3 children in a 90+ year old home with only 900 sq feet. There is no financial resources to update this home. The children have 2 tiny bedrooms, I sleep in the living room. We simply need more room to grow.
2. Our home is in need of some TLC, extending the attic space up to create a playroom would require new roofing (leaky roof), updating ancient wiring (potential fire hazard) and insulating the attic would help keep our drafty old home warmer in the winter (there is very little to no insulation in this space now…Burrrr!).
3. There is a sexual offender that lives on our street, my children and the neighbor children must have direct adult supervision at all times. There are times they are required to be in the house because of safety concerns. The children need to be able to play freely and have the space to be entertained, creative and interact with their friends.
