The loft is rebuilt as far as we can take it without rebuilding the north and south sides of the house. This is a major structural remodel that we are starting right now. But until those sides of the house are completely build, the loft will be in progress.
With that said, we were able to remove the drop down 1950s ceiling and replace it with pine tongue and groove vaulted ceiling. I love how open it is and the Scandinavian feel of the pine, white shiplap and black painted floor. We had originally planned on leaving the shiplap natural cedar but it looked too much like a log cabin. Painting that shiplap white has taken me months but worth the effort.
We are excited to finish the loft but enjoy our progress so far. Considering it was really scary when we bought the house, it is an amazing transformation to a lovely master bedroom and sitting area.
