Here are some before and during photos. I don't have much time to blog. I've been there since I closed on it and have been working on it every day, except today. I will make this quick with lots of photos.
On the left of this picture is a laundry area, very hokey, it's gotta go.The floor is a bit strange in the kitchen. it is at least an inch higher than the hardwood floor in the living room.and there is layer upon layer of vinyl.
I decided to keep the front door and strip it rather than replace it. This is the type of hardware on most of the doors.
I'm going to change the patina to all bronze to renew them.This bathroom stays. Too bad it's chrome - chrome is for cars.
This bathroom will be changed around to become the master bath, the shower is toast and where the picture is taken from will become the laundry room.
another view of future laundry room and doorway to the master bedroom. The glass door will be replaced with a pocket door.This is the built in closet with drawers and cabinets above in master bedroom. The bathroom is behind that wall.Kitchen gutted (except the 20 layers of flooring)Dining room starting to remove the flooring.and after all of those layers with a zillion nails I found hardwood :) Woo hoo!
this is mid demo of laundry area, you can see shower to the left. The shower had 3 layers (why not?) one was pink tin squares made to look like ceramic or porcelain tile ??? strange and not water proof -bad design
.More Laundry hall and shower.This is the scarry rotten under the shower mid demo shot. I knew the bathroom was getting complete new sub floor so this was not a suprise - ugly
ick.And we have filled up one and a half of these so far. I'm planting little shrubs down the walkway.
Great tip for you rehabbers out there - check out your habitat re-store. I donated the double ovens and a few doors to them. I was able to pick up my chandelier, ceiling fan, pendant lights, windows and a few other things. Super savings!! And I got my faucets and cabinet hardware online for 1/3 of what home depot charges. Pays to shop around.
Gotta go. Busy day.
PS. Jodi, you can soooooo do this ;)
