It might be cabin fever, but I swear my house is closing in on me. Every day the walls seem to creep justaninch closer- like that scene from Star Wars on slow-motion. While I love the
tiny cozy feel of my house- and am all about the character of my bungalow- I’m definitely feeling the need to gain a little more usable space for my hobbies.
Or to breathe.
The basement we’ve been using for pretty much everything? Just not cutting it.
I need sunlight! And if that is not possible because of the eternal night that is Wisconsin, then fresh air! No? Too cold to crack open the windows? Then at least ceilings that touch the very heavens themselves*!
Or maybe just finishing up the attic (with skylights) sometime soon.
Or you know…actually starting the attic- frostbitten fingers be damned.
*I fully acknowledge that cost of heating such a kitchen (or this house for that matter) in
Siberia Wisconsin is completely impractical, but a girl can pine over the transformation she saw on This Old House, can’t she? I think so.
