This is the hole that remained from the removal of a whole house fan that was leaking tons of heated air out of this Marshall, VA home.
Comfenergy re-framed the opening to fit a new set of pull down stairs so the homeowner could better access a new storage area above.
Here is a picture of the pull down stairs being "squared up" so the don't bind or pinch when they open and close.
Drywall was patched, and an attic tent was installed so that heated air doesn't leak from this new location, thus keeping this home warm, less drafty, and more energy efficient.
The final product from below!
The final product from above in the attic. Notice the nice storage decking!!!
