Shhhh……so while we were finishing up our last project, we quietly started working on another one (There was a prediction that I would go crazy trying to do two houses at once…..I'll let you be the judge of that! I know the guys have already come to their own conclusion.). We decided to wait and share the photos after we completed the Beach Cottage, so it may seem like we're going extraordinarily fast on this one :-) But don't be fooled, this has been a long work in progress - you can tell by the fall leaves in this photo.

But I LOVE this house. I can't tell you how excited I've been to update it! And while it doesn't have a lot of design elements at this point, we're going to transform it into a Craftsman bungalow. So you'll see us adding lots of Craftsman details to give it a little more character. When we get done with it, it will have a fabulous layout and lots of architectural detail.
But first, let me share some before photos of the First Floor Interior:
|Living Room - Generous sized room with multiple windows and glass door to let light stream in|
|Dining Room - looking towards Living Room and Front Door|
|Nice Sized Kitchen - Maple Cabinets look like new|
|Full Bath - Love the claw foot tub!!!!|
|Downstairs - Front Bedroom|
|Great doorknobs on 1st floor!|
|Staircase Room - aka Back Bedroom|
Here's the Second Floor - Before:
|View up the staircase|
|Back Bedroom - only wide enough for a twin bed and there's the awkward flue coming through the room|
Any guesses where we're going with it? Our initial plan was to only do minor updates. But as typically happens, that plan got thrown out the window and we're doing a major configuration change (can you hear the cha ching, cha ching noise of spending??)! Stay tuned! We'll have lots of updates and you can always follow us on Facebook to see even more photos.
