It has been so long since I've posted. I have been burning the road up trying to complete this project in another city. You may remember that we began a renovation and update, on a 1940's property, in May 2014. First, we renovated the duplex.
Let me refresh your memory with some before photos of this unit. Hang on; they're aren't pretty!
|The side of the garage apartment contains a storage room and workshop. The far door is the entrance to the garages.|
|Nice shade of blue- hummmm? The yard service missed the falling tree! Imagine that!|
|Nothing quite says welcome like a washing machine at your front door! We took half of the screened porch and turned it into an enclosed, tiled laundry room.|
|The kitchen after the tenant moved- so yucky! We took out the kitchen wall and opened it to the great room. The water heater|
was moved to the garage below.
|This is the great room after 20 years of someone smoking in it. There were two layers of carpet over hardwood floors. I removed the window on the wall by the entrance and raised the height of the windows to gain additional space for furniture.|
|I removed the wall in between the guest (blue) and master bedrooms to make one large bedroom. The master bedroom entrance stayed the same. By removing the wall we gained two feet in the bathroom and another wall for a piece of furniture.|
|The master bedroom- I raised this window too. I thought it might be a nice place for a dresser or desk. The small walk-in closet was the only closet in the bedroom. The guest bedroom didn't have a closet.|
|Now, the guest bedroom is part of the master bedroom with a huge walk-in closet, the width of the room. I really love the look of the double closet doors. The opened door is the new bathroom entrance.|
