But people who helped us move in know that the attic (during the moving in: room nr. 5) was totally full with boxes and even old stuff from the formal owners.
Like a very old bed, made with real craftsmanship, out of massive wood, with old spirals and a horse-hair mattress. As good as new but I did not find it very hygienic so we decided not to keep it.
But it was also far too heavy for us to carry it down two flights of stairs. So, we just demolished it in the attic. Easier said than done though : I do not know how many nails, how much rope and other stuff we had to remove.
So after a day with a feeling of moving out again, today we finally could start removing all the old boards and isolation material. Not a very NICE job! I could tell the mice had a good time up there!
A nice surprise was the big amount of space behind the boards, almost 2 meter 40 extra on both sides.
So enough space for our plans.
Next week second phase of the attic.
