Man Transformed Attic Into Closet For His Wife
If you need an attic inspection look no further than this transformation at the Cabrera family home that daughter Joserin shared on Twitter.
On June 22nd, Joserin shared four photos that showed some serious remodeling skills. “[A]Still, my father built my mother a closet in the attic, ”she wrote.
The photos included a before shot of an apparently neglected attic; an “in progress” photo showing new floors laid and walls and ceilings freshly painted; and two breathtaking “after” shots.
Check out the photos below:

“Honestly, my wife and I needed more space for our clothes,” Rodolfo Cabrera told House Beautiful. “One day I went to my attic and started thinking, ‘Wow, we have all this empty space that we can turn into something else.'”
Cabrera, who has been involved in home remodeling for 15 years and owns Maryland-based Remodeling & Design LLC, said the work took about three weeks and cost him between $ 25,000 and $ 30,000.
After cleaning the attic, Cabrera and his team carried out the framing, updated the electrics, hung drywall work, plastered everything and created a ceiling with LED built-in lights.
According to Cabrera, the hardest part was the stairs as they are only attached to one wall. “So we had to add as much support as possible to that one page.” After Joserin’s tweet went viral, the company shared pictures of these stairs and we have to say they have a serious wow factor:

The company also installed built-in shelving and pushed furniture from the master bedroom into the closet. Finally, to keep the room cool, a split AC unit was installed.
This spectacular attic closet can be seen more closely on a room tour on Remodeling & Design LLC’s Instagram account.
The response on Twitter ranged from admiration to envy.
“My jaw literally fell!” one person wrote. “My God, that’s too stupid! Your daddy is the blueprint and whoever you get married is better at keeping up with that type of energy! “
Another commented: “Whatever you do, don’t let my wife see it. Many Thanks!”
Can we all agree that this is the best use of the empty attic ever?
