Speechless Sunday: Content "Attic"Kitty

Real Estate Agent with Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Mike D. Bono & Co.'s 0912122870 LA


While showing  new construction homes around Lake Charles yesterday, we came upon one home where the sellers had left the attic opened for the buyer to view the floored attic access.  You may be wondering why we would be looking in the attic in the preview stage of the buying process.

We do not have basements in Louisiana so attic space is actually used by homeowners here in Southwest Louisiana.

Attics are not what they used to be in  days gone by where there was just a small crawl space for you to store your suitcases and Christmas decorations with all the pink fluffy insulation. 

With the higher pitched roofs found in the French Country construction you can actually stand up in most new construction attics.  Builders are beginning to finish the attic space with flooring and this is a selling point for buyers who have ALOT OF STUFF, not to mention that modern attics are also better insulated.

The seller knew the house was being shown, so they left the ladder down for us.  Sure enough my buyer was interested in checking out the attic.

Guess this curious kitty was also interested in exploring a new spot not usually accessible!

It looks like the kitten is the gate keeper of the attic.

Good luck and success.

Interesting news story on attics!  Thanks for the info and the cute kitty too!  We don't seem to have attics OR basements in most Tucson homes.  Storage space is premium.

LOL.  That kitty doesn't look like he's going to let you or anyone else past.  What a great little perch!

Marilyn, you just never know what is going to happen during a showing, and this time you have a little friend who wants to look at the attic with you, haha.
