|You may remember that we began renovating a 1940's duplex, in May, that my Grandfather built. One thing I have learned is patience! Surprises may be around every corner! Renovations can take longer than building a new house. I think the most difficult part has been that this property is two hours from our home. I need to be there and here at the same time!|
The road or "B" side unit is complete and can be seen here.
|The former management company removed this railing when they had the roof replaced. I'm thrilled that it has been built back. We are letting the pressure treated wood dry before painting it.|
|Once an older property is renovated current building codes must be met. Now, a handrail is required. It mirrors the railing on top of the porch and flat roof of the study.|
|Welcome to the "A" side.|
This is the living room. This side also received new thermal pane windows, upgraded wiring and new central heating and air conditioning.
Surprise number one, termite damage! Beware, scary photos below!
|This is the view into the dining room. These units mirror each other with the exception of a study and screened porch on this side. The ceilings are nine feet and have wide crown molding. There are hardwood floors throughout on both floors.|
|Many years ago, my Dad added a corner cabinet to each corner of the dining room. We lived here before we moved to the county.|
|The kitchen will be totally renovated and updated. A cabinet has been removed to add a dishwasher. We are saving the cabinets and will add to them around the kitchen.|
