The further and continuing adventures of the girl who sat in the back of your homeroom, reading and daydreaming.

Thanks -- once again! -- to the Data Viking, I've got an attic just about ready to turn into a decent room. We wrapped up all but some small and awkward corners of the vapor barrier today, after having completed the insulation last week. (It feels warmer already, probably 'cos we've got an unseasonable warm front rolling in. My sinuses are nonplussed).
The attic had kneewalls framed in and a fair amount of insulation when I bought the place, so we weren't starting from scratch; but it was something I'd never tried before.
It will take some more effort -- not to mention wainscoting and wallboard, scubbing scrubbing [thanks, Tam!] and paint, plus a bit of electrical work -- but I'm now in a position to follow up on my earlier plan to find a like-minded boarder to rent the room. I may have a line on someone. We shall just have to see how it works out.
