CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"

Gorham Attic

What was a mere wish to have, some 7 years ago, is now taking shape in the attic for this homeowner. Working from pictures in a "Fine Homebuilding" magazine on Attic's, we have come up with this current design to put together something as close as possible. Using Red Oak trim as our primary wood for the sleeping area, the remaining trim will be of a "Poplar" wood species which will be painted.
