———————————————————————————————————————————–

Above is the before image of an ugly carpeted window seat. Who ever thought that was a good idea? The carpet smells too.

The website is carpeted on the inside as well. Just opening the lid wafts an unnatural amount of grossness into the air.

So the first step here was to roll up that carpet and haul it out the front door.

Above is an image from inside the window seat. It appears that the bottom of this window seat is higher than the subfloor for the rest of the room. This causes a little difficulty later – but I have a solution.

In order to cut the sheetrock at the edge of the window seat and prevent more damage than needed to the sheetrock that won’t be removed, use a laser level to create a straight line. You could also use a pencil – but lasers are so much cooler.

The Dremel tool worked really well to cut through the sheetrock, but you can also use a sheetrock knife.

Riiiiipppp the sheetrock off and all that remains is the framing for the bench.

Next, a saw zaw came in handy to cut the framing. The dremel didn’t work well on the wood – it mostly just burned through the wood.

Rrriiiiiiiiiip again and all that’s left is new and more usable space!

Next, I was worried about the energy loss that this dormer represents. It just bumps out from the side of the house. So I did some research about alternatives to rosin paper and found this quiet walk product. (over 80%) with postindustrial/pre-consumer fibers, materials that may otherwise haveĀ been land filled.

I went Lumber Liquidators on the opposite side of town to buy it. I really didn’t want to buy a brand new roll of this product since I needed just a little area and it would wasteful to buy the whole roll because I have no purpose for the rest of it. I asked the guy behind the counter if they had an remnants, returns or waste and he said they did. Much to my surprise they had about twice as much as I needed. I offered to pay for it, and he insisted that he was going to throw it away anyway – so I was welcome to it! Talk about a win-win! That is what I call a Greenstring remodel!

Just roll this out like the rosin paper from the rest of the room’s rosin paper. Then staple the edges to keep them down.

Because the flooring structure for the bump out is different then the rest of the room – the flooring level needed to be evened out. Instead of buying new particle board underlayment, I was able to repurpose some from the floor I had to take out downstairs in order to re-insulate it. All that for another day.

Below is a photo of the screws used that are long enough to get through the particle board and get a grip into the sub floor.

Here is what it looked like once all the pieces fit together.

Then, since insulating is a very important added feature of this new floor, I used Great Stuff foam insulation to fill in the seams.

And that’s it. Now you may continue flooring as you were and start imagining all the amazing things you can do with this added floor space. I think I will build a desk…..
