Catching Up!

5 Apr

Its been a few months since my last post and we’ve done a lot in that time.  I’ve separated the posts and over the next few days, I’ll publish them as I finish catching up…

Planning

There were many features this place had that made it attractive to us.  The major areas we wanted to changes were:

  • take the one bdrm basement with two awkward rec/living rooms and officially create a legal, two bdrm suite
  • convert the eat-in kitchen area on the main floor into a mudroom/laundry area
  • elevate the sunken floor of the living room to be even with the rest of the home
  • use the space of both the main bath and the tiny ensuite to create two full bathrooms

We took the previous layout of the main bath/ensuite and by taking out the wall between the two rooms, moving it over to extend the wall running from the bathtub, we achieved two well-appointed rooms - especially when you look at the limited spare footage we were working with.  Adding a pocket door to the main bath will also add to making the space feel bigger.

    Isn’t it funny how simple the words appear when you write about renovating? ‘Take down a wall’, ‘raise a floor.’ Not so simple, your projects. Good work.

      So true… Many a time, have I written about a project before or after and its always very simplified. I can always tell when a post was written in the “during” phase – its way longer, more detailed and the tone is never happy.
