So excited
It's a loft space that was boarded up
Need to find a torch

Well they made that sound a lot more exciting than it was!

This is on the Mirror...that's how I came across the thread. No offence OP but wtf?

We had a secret section of our loft, you had to be very short to get round it. In 5 years I only went all the way in once and DH couldn’t fit. I just found old boxes of the bathroom tiles. When we left I put our old tins of paint in there so that they knew the colours. Should have planted something interesting like a model skeleton, shouldn’t I 😂

I've left that cover off though, I might have unleashed the demagorgon or something

endev Sat 23-Feb-19 20:48:34

Yabbers, yes, they've basically boarded up the loft space, but left about 3 metres of space, which I reckon 2m could be usable. 2m x 3m

Thanks Vivian
I do love it
It was a bit ott for my taste, but a lovely renovation and now I'm finished with my changes I'm very happy

Sorry Tinkobell

----Ooh you've got me thinking OP!

That looks like a gorgeous house with all the mock Tudor fronting!

Please keep posting pictures!

I've never seen in our attic and we've been here since Oct time my Uncle comes over I'm getting him to open the attic. It's a 1950s end terrace so I'm not expecting anything fantastic.
(Would love to find a box of 1980s Blue Jeans/Jackie/Patches magazines but the previous owners only moved here in 2000 so there's b****r all chance of that.)

Seriously I am still interested in that ironing board - did the lady ever find it in her flat? I can't find the original thread now.

Fgs, it’s where the clown lives, don’t you watch films.

Yabbers Sat 23-Feb-19 18:04:47

Only one side of the room is totally finished and painted but the other is derelict?

Tinkobell Sat 23-Feb-19 18:02:05

It's not a room OP. It's just a boarded up roof void with a service panel to attend to roof leaks, pipework that kind of thing.

endev Sat 23-Feb-19 16:06:59

Don't think there's any bodies!
Can't really do anything unless I get a builder go look at it, and I've really had it with those type of sheisters recently

That's odd. I hope no-one is buried there. sad

What you going to do with it?

Jux Fri 22-Feb-19 23:33:19


Thanks for persevering with the bad wifi, and posting all that. It's fascinating.

Oh, Centre Parcs!

For a moment there I thought you were ripping holes in a holiday let! gringrinblushgringrin

endev Fri 22-Feb-19 22:36:40

Yeah that sounds about right pickle

endev Fri 22-Feb-19 22:32:35

The big bedroom on the other side has a big drop down, not a metre but about a foot.
And under the kitchen floor there was about a metre space

picklemepopcorn Fri 22-Feb-19 22:30:33

Because the ledge is above floor height, like a windowsill. Basically they've puta fakewindow embrasure in, to make the room look stylish, but wasted a fair bit of space in the process.

Am I right, op?

Actually ignore us, try and enjoy your holiday.

endev Fri 22-Feb-19 22:30:13

Those plans arent quite right
The other big bedroom has an en-suite and this room has a door from the hallway
Confusing sorry

IamPickleRick Fri 22-Feb-19 22:25:50

Why does it drop down. That’s confusing me more!

endev Fri 22-Feb-19 22:21:09

The redline is about where the room ends

shins Fri 22-Feb-19 22:18:39

I can see Brian from Hull.

PhilomenaButterfly Fri 22-Feb-19 22:11:08

Not necessarily DontCallMeCharlotte. Mine doesn't have one.

IamPickleRick Fri 22-Feb-19 22:09:59

I don’t get it, which room is it on the plans?
