1st attempt at remodel


I have done a lot of odd and end stuff helping people, plus owning a new house. But 8/2014 I bought a house that was deemed "liveable" and not any more then that on appraisal. Have done ALOT of work in last year and a half. Still got a lot more. Here are some before and after shots of what I have done.

Entrance shortly after we started remodel

So where did the space for the alcoves come from (What did you lose on the other side of the wall)?

Behind the living room wall was just a really long Hall to master. So I opened up the master to living room with a tiny little Hall. Center of the hall became dry bar. Hall closest to front was turned into a linen closet. Old linen was a tiny 2'x2'. It was taken out and the second bedroom door was moved over. I will take pics of it as that room is the last room I need to finish. I removed closet from that room as well because the electric panel was in it and no longer code. I figured it's easier to move closet then electrical panel.

Kitchen is my current project. Not even close to done, but progress. I try to keep it functional at each step.
