I hadn’t been over to the house for a few days, and headed over on Monday afternoon.
I saw this:
Yeah, that use to be the house. Once I was able to stand, and pulled my upside down head from between my legs and the panic attack subsided, I did see something going up
The 12 foot rear addition. And with that, I had to leave. Two days later it was better:
and by Friday we officially were going in the right direction…..UP.
Okay, walls going up. The 12 foot addition is added to the back, and I can make out the rooms on the 1st floor. The biggest change to the house was adjusting the original floor plan (which sucked because it was awkward). What use to be a family room is now a kitchen and pantry.
The wall left of the fireplace use to butt up to the garage, but we replaced that space with a walk in pantry that will have an entrance in/out to the garage.
dining room lost all of its walls, because they were stupid.
family room changes:
Tunnel hall is how a mudroom:
and the Master changes include the former little walk in connected to bath, is now to separate master walk-ins.
What use to be a wall on the left, was bumped into living room space to make a new bathroom.
I really cannot believe how fast things can move. I have a feeling if everything goes according to plan, this coming week is going to fly. (I hope!)
It’s hard to focus on what’s more impressively disgusting in the first picture, the huge snake skin found in the flooring, or the 2 feet of rot they uncovered where said snake lived….
And no walls on the back of the house. Or roof, or second floor…
It’s finally time to say goodbye to the Christmas wreath.
What beautiful weather we are having, if you are a fan of murky depression.
Mirrors are still up. Weird, right?
Those rooms? GONE. I stood in this corner and took this shot a week ago- VS today.
I’ve gotten a lot of, “why didn’t you just tear it all down?” Well gosh- I never thought of that!
