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…
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.
