Well, the property is completely redone and actually sold as well. It came out so nice (they all do), we sold it already.
Renovations included new roof, windows, doors, floors, kitchen, bath, heating system, central air-conditioning system, entire plumbing, updated electrical system and all new fixtures, fresh paint, new landscaping … Our “usual treatment”.
We also opened up the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to create a more open feel. The opening between the dining room and living room was an arch. We changed that to square. To match the rest of the house.
There was a porch added on sometimes in the 1950’s. We brought the heat and central air to it and made it into a fully functional part of the house – sunroom.
Since there wasn’t a whole lot of closet space, we got a little creative and installed a very cool, fully customizable, IKEA wardrobe. Which amongst many other things, also very elegantly holds 16 pairs of shoes.
Luckily we didn’t run into any major issues or surprises on this one.
Actually, there was one surprise. But it was a nice one. Under the old carpets were beautiful wood floors. Installed in a pattern you don’t see in today’s 1200 sq.ft houses. Someone took their time to install this 90 years ago. See on the pictures below.
Without further ado, here are the pictures of the final product: (You can see the before pictures here):
So there you have it. Another great transformation. I love how everything came together. Stay tuned for more.
PS: If you ever come across any fixer uppers that meet my criteria (click here for the criteria), don’t hesitate to let me know. I am always looking for new projects to work on.
