Hmmm... It has come to my attention that my week one post showed two pics. Um, there were many, many more. Not sure why the pictures didn't post because they are showing on my version. Gotta love technology!
Here's the second attempt to show you the inside of the house. Yes. There really is more than a snowy brick exterior. The spacing is coming out weird, but I'll take what I can get for now. Thanks so much for your comments (both on the blog and in real life), otherwise, I'd have no idea you couldn't see what I'm seeing.
The lovely living room. There was an extremely heavy wood-burning stove on a brick hearth. Sold the stove on Craigslist and plan on busting out the brick and using drywall in its place.
The kitchen: Not in horrible shape. It will get painted cabinets, granite counters, new appliances, and tile floor.
The laundry room. A cute space. More paint, tile, and some updated plumbing will make this good as new.
Hall bath: Very cool that this house has two full baths. We'll rip everything out here and replace the tub, toilet, vanity top, mirror, light fixture. Paint and tile will complete the renovation.
There are two beds in addition to the Master suite. This is the middle bedroom and the site of some teenager graffiti. New drywall was put up in this room so we'll mud/tape and texture it to match the rest of the house. Paint and carpet will be the standard here, as well as everywhere else. New light fixtures, hardware, and knobs will also go throughout.
The Master: A GREAT size for the house. It's got a cool tray ceiling and an attached bath. Plus doors to the backyard, which we'll change from sliding to French. We had a little wallpaper party a couple of days before we closed. The kids couldn't help themselves!
And again with the Master bath, it will get the same treatment as the hall bath. New counters, tub, tile, toilet, fixtures, etc.
Super scary garage conversion. Obviously the carpet is coming up here, we'll replace the garage door, remove the air conditioning unit and two new exterior doors will go in. Paint and an opener will take this space back to its original purpose.
Week Two pics are on the way, with Week Three coming up shortly. I just need to rescue them from Kevin's phone. Wish me luck...
