Exploring The Cosmos From Your Stellar Room

Exploring The Cosmos From Your Stellar Room


Unused attic space can be converted into a spare bedroom or office. If you have no need for either, why not turn that space into a stellar room? Keep an eye on the cosmos without leaving the convenience of your home behind!


Interest in the heavens continues to increase as man’s knowledge of the universe expands. Pluto has been demoted from planethood, while Mars continues to shine brighter as Christmas approaches. Maybe you already track celestial objects from the convenience of your backyard, but how long can you stand being outside when summer’s bugs or winter’s deep freeze take over?

One way to take advantage of star gazing is to convert spare attic space into a stellar room. No, this isn’t some major home improvement project that will set you back tens of thousands of dollars. Instead, an attic stellar room can provide hours of amusement without weeks of construction fuss. Let’s take a look at how you can start this minor home remodeling project.

With available attic space, you don’t have to do a lot to make the room usable. Provided secure flooring is already in place, you can set up a telescope and peer through the lense to track the latest comet, explore strange worlds, and boldly go where you haven’t gone before!

What you will need to have installed are opening shutters and gazing windows so that you can view the night sky. Some attics already have windows installed which could be adequate for your needs. If additional work is needed, consider home installation services, experts who can draw up a building plan that will ultimately add value to your property.

If you decide to go for a larger project ( adding insulation, dry wall and electrical outlets to the attic) then financing your home remodeling project could be the best approach to making your star gazing room come true.

Your finished attic stellar room can provide you with hours of nightly enjoyment, just the type of entertainment which can enrich the mind!
