Completed 2010

This project turned a 650 sq ft unfinished and unused attic space above a garage into a sun-filled family exercise space. Details include formaldehyde-free insulation (above existing code requirements) in the ceiling and walls, prefinished bamboo flooring, a 1.5 ton 20 SEER ductless split-system HVAC unit for heating and cooling, recessed fluorescent lighting, built-in storage nooks and no VOC finishes.
