Nice from the house
At House Beautiful we love a good transformation before and after the house and this will make you rethink the current state of your loft. On June 21, Joserin Cabrera (Twitter user @yagirljoss) tweeted "Anyway, my father built a closet for my mother in the attic", along with four photos that show the incredible transformation. The tweet went viral and had over 417,000 likes at the time of writing. Maryland-based company Remodeling & Design LLC created the wardrobe, which can be seen in a room tour on his Instagram account. We spoke to Rodolfo Cabrera, owner of Remodeling & Design LLC, to find out what inspired this transformation and how it came about.

Cabrera, who comes from Guatemala, has been converting homes for 15 years and founded his company four years ago. The transformation took about three weeks and cost about $ 25,000 to $ 30,000. As inspiration for this closet, Cabrera says to House Beautiful: “Honestly, my wife and I needed more space for our clothes. One day I went to my attic and started thinking, "Wow, we have all this empty space that we can turn into something else."
The process started with "cleaning the loft because it was dirty". Then Cabrera and his staff “did the framing, the electrical system, the hanging of the drywall, the plastering and the ceiling design with the LED [lights]. . They also installed built-in shelves and pushed furniture from the master bedroom into the closet. It is clear that Cabreras "has just taken over creativity". The materials used were "2x4 woods, drywall, insulation, electrical cables, LED light strips, recessed lights and paint". Wood was used to make the shelves and laminate for the floor. In addition, a split AC unit was installed so that we didn't have to lay any channels up there, ”says Cabrera.

The hardest part was "making the stairs because they are only attached to one wall, so we had to add as much support as possible to this side." Well, we love this metamorphosis so much that we may try to do our own Transform attics!
