In nearly every horror movie ever made, attics are creepy, scary places full of boogeymen and ghosts. And some attics really do look like that in real life. But they don’t have to be. Case in point, one dedicated husband completely transformed his family home attic and turned it into a stunning closet for his wife and himself.

It took Rodolfo Cabrera around 3 weeks of hard work and 25,000-30,000 dollars to completely revamp the attic. Was it worth it? We definitely think so. But scroll down to see for yourselves, dear Pandas! Be sure to let us know what you think of transformation in the comments.

Rodolfo has been working in the home remodeling business for 15 years, so it’s no wonder that the attic transformation looks amazing. Rodolfo is originally from Guatemala but now lives in Maryland. Four years ago, he founded his very own company, Remodeling & Design LLC. Scroll down for Bored Panda’s interview with Rodolfo’s daughter Joserin whose photos of the attic on Twitter went viral.

The rest of the house looks like the redone attic

Photos of the attic went viral after Rodolfo’s daughter Joserin Cabrera shared them on Twitter. Joserin’s post got more than 439.6k likes and was retweeted more than 68.2k times which just goes to show how much people adored her dad’s beautified attic.

Joserin told Bored Panda that she expected “a few likes and retweets because people love a good before-and-after.” However, she revealed that she never expected the huge amount of attention the photos got.

She said that both she and her mom were both over the Moon with the remodeling job. “We were both really amazed because we knew it was going to look good but he exceeded our expectations.”

According to Joserin, the rest of their house actually looks like their attic. “Everything was redone by my dad and his company, Remodeling And Design LLC, before we moved in.”

The husband let his creativity take over

Rodolfo told House Beautiful that he was inspired to create the dream closet when he realized that they both needed some more space for their clothes. “One day, I went up to my attic and I began to think ‘Wow, we have all this empty space that we can transform into something else,’” he said.

But before any major renovations could happen, the first step was cleaning up the attic because it was very dirty. Rodolfo and his employees then got down to business. They did the framing, the electrical, hung up the drywall, did the plastering, and finished up the ceiling design with the LED lights.

Then they installed the shelves and moved furniture from Rodolfo and his wife’s bedroom into the closet. Rodolfo admitted that his creativity just took over.

If you’re thinking of doing a similar remodeling of your own attic, then you ought to know that the materials used were 2×4 wood planks, drywall, insulation, electrical wire, LED strip lighting, recessed lights, as well as paint (and lots of it).

According to Rodolfo, the biggest challenge was doing the stairs leading up to the gorgeous attic. “They are only attached to one wall so we needed to add as much support as we could to that one side.”
