Let's look past the parts that make me want to reach for a broom and see the progress.
Here's where we were:
And here's where we are:
|New Entry Closet|
The closet doors practically reach the ceiling. I love it!
It's too shallow for a rail. Which is fine with us. We decided to keep the square footage in the living room. So those boards are going to hold some hooks. Adult height and child height.
And those shelves are deeeeep! I'm already hunting down the perfect baskets. I've got 5 shelves on either side. Plus the space on the floor. Bring on winter and all the mitts, hats & scarves we can find!
Speaking of the living room, here it is. Full of s-t-u-f-f. That trim has to live somewhere during installation...
|View From The Stairs|
I love seeing the openness when walking down the stairs. The house feels 100 times bigger without that wall running down the middle. A little more exposed, yes. But the unified living space makes up for it.
|View From The Couch|
Now walk into the living room and "sit down" on the "couch". (This was taken pre-appliances) You can see the powder room has a door and trim!
She's tiny, but she's a powder room. Population: 1. For short periods of time.
That niche on the wall will hold toilet paper & a backup hand towel.
Minimalism at it's best.
|View From The Kitchen|
Can you tell most of the work happens within the frame of this picture? The tools, table & material just might give it away.
While it's hard to point out progress here, it will make for a memorable "during" picture when everything renovation-related is out and the living begins....
I'm counting down the days....!!!
