Remodeling my attic

In my home, there is an attic space up on the third floor.

The attic has primarily been used for storage, and it was unfinished.

However, this last year, I made it my project to renovate and remodel the attic to turn it into a man cave. I painted all the walls and installed hardwood flooring. I installed new lighting and a sound system. Then, I picked out all new furniture and wall art. The only thing I had left to figure out was the heating and cooling situation. The HVAC system in our home did not reach all the way up to the attic. Since it is the top floor of the house, it gets especially hot in the summertime. For air conditioning, I decided to go with a ductless mini split. I didn’t want to deal with the installation of a window unit or a portable air conditioning unit. I would have to figure out where to store it and I’d always have to lug it up and down the stairs when it came time to take it out for the season. A ductless mini split is efficient and it’s mounted right on the wall. It can be turned on and off as needed. For the heating, I decided to install electric baseboard heaters. The heaters are controlled with a light switch and take up minimal space. I just turn them on and off as needed, since we don’t need to worry about heating the room 24/7. Now, my man cave is finally complete!
