Remember that scene in Christmas Vacation where Chevy Chase gets stuck up in the attic while his entire family goes out shopping? He freaks out at first but then realizes he can reminisce and watch old home movies of his family while snuggling with old mementos. Well, I can lock Andrew up in the attic now too! Except our attic is super hot. As they were tearing off the roof Andrew realized how much attic space we had and asked DMH to create working attic for us. We had them cut a hole into the ceiling and install a telescopic attic ladder so we could extend it down and climb up to store items we didn't need (such as all of Audrey's clothes that she has already outgrown!).
Access in the ceiling of the hallway:
Wow, you are a long ladder!:
Audrey's bedding and clothes:
Look at all the space!
