Well all, you could say it has been a long while since you heard from me. I’m not sure if I had updated you on the fact that I bought a house in November, and that we are currently still trying to remodel it when my lease is up this Friday.
Let me start by saying we had no intentions on changing much of this house besides redoing the hard wood floors– mind you they were real and original. That was the original plan, then one thing lead to another and we got to where we are today. I will post before and afters when I get my life back together a little bit more, but I want you all to be updated and ready for the next few posts that have to do with the house.
The first thing we did once we got the hard wood floors re-done, was toy with the idea of taking down this bowing wall between the kitchen and dinning room. This was something we talked about a lot but for the most part decided we weren’t going to do it. That is the funny thing you see, about a month later that wall was being torn down and cabinets were being ripped out. This house has gone from its 80’s era to the almost modern day era. This house just had too much charm that I thought it needed a little help while keeping the charm that made me love it so much.
The wall was taken out and an LVL beam — support beam — was put in the place of the old wall. This opened up the kitchen and dinning by a ton– people who have older homes know how chopped up they can be. This house has done a complete 360 degrees and I can’t wait to post more about it with pictures and all the different elements we used going into making this one an oldie but a goodie.
Thank you for reading this week, please stay tuned for the next few weeks of this crazy turn around.
