Demolition…so far, so good. The sellers kept the original 1970 cabinets throughout the house and bc it became a rental property for them, the house was not kept in good (or clean) condition. The husband and I contemplated living with some things (after my description and seeing pictures that I took of the house), but after he physically saw the place, he put his foot down (and I agreed happily!) Yes, he trusted me enough to let me put an offer on the house even before seeing it! He trusts me so…
Thought I’d share some “before” pictures of the kitchen and one of the bathrooms.
I am by no means a designer so it is very unnerving to spend money here, spend money there all the while second guessing myself and wondering if the end product will all come together and be cohesive. I do know what I like and my husband, for the most part, shares my likes and dislikes. So that is what we are running with at the moment. I have high hopes and I pinch myself every time I visit the house. You see…we were not the ”best” candidate, but they chose us! Maybe it was the love note lil sis told me to write And the family picture I included! Whatever the reason, the house and I were meant to be (or that’s what I tell myself when insomnia kicks in bc of all the checklists that are running through my mind!!!).
We are in full blown demo mode and soon electrical stuff will be happening. How many cans (recessed lights) is too much? Where should they be placed? How many should be on dimmers? Will there be a glare on the TV? All questions I have thoroughly thought through and contemplated. Phase II of the remodel happens this week! Yay!
Thanks for stopping by!
