Q: We are considering finishing the attic of our hundred-year-old home. The space would function as an office and play room. Because we'd rather not eat up floor space in one of kids' bedrooms (and there is very little hall/landing space) we are considering creating access to the attic by way of a spiral staircase in the master bedroom. Is this just too weird? Would it be a turn-off for future buyers? I'd love to hear about any creative alternatives!Sent by Kelly
