1922 "Arts and Crafts" Renovation


November 19th, 2012 - Torture but reward. Well, the granite is done and WOW does it look nice! Unfortunately, the vacuum the guys were using had a stuck wheel and as they dragged it across our new hardwood floors, they left quite the mark. Needless to say, they are going to take care of it. I should have had the floors covered in rosin paper, I didn't even think of it as I was waiting on the kitchen guy to finish the toe kicks. Anywho, here the pictures. The kitchen granite is called Blue Flowers and a mix of blue, gold, and white. The bathroom granite is called Persa Blue and is a mix of blue, gold, and beige (to better tie into the beige/blue/green tile). Keep in mind, this house is very close to the ocean, so we're trying to keep lots of blues and greys, etc., in the house.













Bathroom:





Yes, the sink is VERY small in the guest bathroom. Given the space constraints we were working in, it's the biggest possible sink (and also happens to be the smallest they sell). It's more than enough to wash hands and brush teeth and still leave counter space for soap, etc.

November 24th, 2012 - Day [Too Many to Count] Today was paint all day with my father in law until we couldn't paint anymore. And wow, did we do just that. Living room is now totally painted, all the way up into the upstairs hallway. The only thing remaining was to do trim work and that will be taken care of tomorrow. I'm no painter, but with a good brush, a good roller, and a steady hand, you learn real quick. This color is called Moose Mousse, it's a Valspar color from Lowes.

November 25, 2012 - Living room trim is all painted, as well as all the built in bookcases and fireplace surround. The living room is DONE, now needs a good cleaning and some furniture. With only the kitchen left to paint this week, we've set our move in date for next weekend. 4 months of hard work is finally coming around.













I'm getting pretty good at this painting thing, finally getting the hang of making a nice edge using no tape.

Haven't had a chance to update in a while, but as of last night at 4pm we passed out final inspection and are getting our CO paperwork today. Looks like we'll be moving in this weekend! Updates to follow this weekend when the dust settles (and gets picked up!)

Been a long time since an update. We've been living in the house since December and loving every minute of it. The first phase of renovation finished in December and in April we started up again. I'll start with some before and afters.

This was when we first bought the house, back in July 2012. Sorry for the small picture, I took it from our appraisal report:



This was December when we finished phase 1:



And here is present, there's been some landscaping since this photo, but you can see the transformation:



On the exterior, we tore off the 91 year old red cedar shingles and reshingled. We ripped up the old concrete walkway and put down a cobblestone walkway, made some flower beds, new gutters, new fence, and installed underground sprinklers.

Here's a before shot of the bathroom:



Here's the after shot of the bathroom:



Sorry for the slow updates, I'm trying to do "before and after" shots together. Tile work was all done by me (my first tile job ever) and the granite was contracted.

Here's the before kitchen (exactly as we bought the house, this was what we walked into):





Here's the new kitchen:







The new photos are from December, we've since added some wall hangings and shades:





Lots of fish/ocean related stuff as the ocean is at the end of our street (6 houses down basically)

Old oil furnace:



New 96% Burnham Alpine gas unit:



I realize some photos are repeats, but I just dug out some of the old photos and figured I'd match them to the new in the same post.
