Matthew Stenerson came along and decided to give this space a new life. Working with his friends, Ryan Fall, Jake Zontelli and Nadia Haddad, Matthew transformed the attic of his 1901 South Minneapolis “farmhouse” duplex into a beautiful bedroom and office.
We added spray-foam insulation, a stairwell from the kitchen, (I had to sacrifice my pantry, but that’s okay. I don’t cook) and some extra electrical. We cut 4×8 plywood sheets into panels and white washed them with one light coat of paint. I washed the floors and sealed the floors, but didn’t have to sand or stain. The front end of the attic became the bedroom with a small closet and the back became a living room and office, with the stairs located behind the sofa.
