Fixing Cohen’s House
August 18, 2010 by katemcdonald
So…here are the promised house update photos… Cohen asks me every day if his house is fixed yet- its good to be able to tell him “almost!” The long list of to-do’s is getting shorter by the day. Tile and cabinets and countertops need to be installed…upstairs needs painted and carpeted… and fixtures… then! drumroll..final inspection! Hoping to move in less than 2 weeks, without or without the granite (which I am told will take a little longer) 🙂
The next updates I put out will be of us all moved in and decorated 🙂
right inside the back door BEFORE...odd little extra room
just inside the door NOW..all opened up to be a big family room
kitchen BEFORE: tiny and cramped, oddly laid out, closed off
NOW its the dining room! check out that vaulted ceiling! and its now open to the new kitchen
BEFORE was a nasty bedroom that opened from the old dining room
NOW its a great family room that's been opened to extra room to make it extra big (24x12)
BEFORE awkward doorway from bedroom to dining room...
NOW the family room is open to the kitchen, with plenty of space for the washer and dryer to be tucked away
dining room BEFORE (now the kitchen)...weird doorways to skinny hallways
NOW the kitchen (not finished, but you get the idea)
dining room BEFORE...closed off to the old kitchen
NOW the kitchen is open to the dining room
living room BEFORE : closed off
NOW the living room is completely open to the entrance and the kitchen!
half bath BEFORE : no window, small enough to bang your knees on the sink if you dared to sit down
half bath NOW.. more than 2x the size and there is a window!
Co's bedroom BEFORE
Co's bedroom now...carpet and paint coming soon!
bathroom BEFORE: horrible layout & pink..enough said!
bathroom NOW: will be tiled soon... definitely opened up & more comfortable lay out
my bedroom BEFORE..note the fireplace and odd closet/eaves
my bedroom NOW: no nasty chimney! no weird closet!
my bedroom BEFORE...to the right & left were 4' deep eaves that closed the room off
NOW...to the right the eave is completely open, giving the room 4' more on that side
..and NOW to the left is a ledge and another foot of space... instead of a 11x15 room, I now have a 16x15! what a difference
