Location: Madison, WI
When Addison’s fantasy-filled attic playroom was featured as part of a Green Tour on Re-Nest, it won the hearts of readers. Parents Lynn and Steve transformed the attic space—along with Addison’s bedroom and bath—when they renovated their 1860’s carriage house in Madison, WI. Creative and budget-minded, the couple found the majority of building materials and supplies at Habitat for Humanity ReStore, along with favorite thrift stores. They were happy to let us take a closer look at the dreamy spaces they created for their daughter.
Attic playroom. Lynn and Steve salvaged the gingerbread trim from the renovation of Lynn's brother's house, which is just down the street.
The barn is a thrift-store find, decorated with circus artwork found on the Internet.
A seating area under the "tree" that is actually a dressed up utility pipe.
Entrance to the bedroom.
Bath - The couple mounted the bathroom fixtures at a height suitable for their young daughter. The wall-mounted sink can be raised as she grows.
Look what a lot of creativity can lead to. With such a space to be in and play in wouldn't you like to be a kid again?
