It's the final day of 2013 and we're continuing to check off items on the to-do list! Major changes at the house include the relocation of our living room's West wall, the complete gutting and reconstructing of the main bathroom, reconstructed closet for Caden, miniaturization of Viv's room, and a few little updates to the entry. We're still on that path of making things look worse before they can look better, but progress is progress! Here are the pics:
^^ The West wall of the living space officially moved over three feet. It adds a TON of space to the living area by eliminating the old hallway. The only bummer is that it has temporarily made Viv's room into a shoebox :(
^^ Another view of the living space now that the West wall has moved. That change really helped center the fireplace and give the room a better focal point and flow.
^^ Poor girl wasn't excited when she saw the outcome of her room. She lost about 25 square feet but we'll be making it up when we expand her room into a portion of the garage (it'll be better than it sounds). The pictures are hard to understand, but the wall in the lower left corner of the "before" picture moved to the right by 3 feet
^^ My favorite update is all of the progress on the main bathroom! It was gutted... like COMPLETELY GUTTED to the studs. No ceiling. No floor. No nada. The plumbing was completely redone, the window was eliminated, and two of the walls moved to maximize the space (left wall moved over 9 inches, right wall moved over 36 inches). New tub and tile are in... lots more progress coming very soon!
^^ And lastly, finally got that porch light and the house numbers up. WOO to the HOO!
I hope you all have a happy and safe New Year celebration... see you in 2014!
