The living room has a fireplace!!!! I've been hoping to have a mantle project in one of these houses, and can't wait to get started on this one. What a great focal point for the room. BTW - see the little opening in the wall on the right? We think it's so you can access the telephone from both rooms. That seems so quaint in today's world of cell phones, don't you think? Or maybe it was to pass food from the kitchen to the dining room.....but a turkey would never fit!
The Dining Room. We think there is hardwood under all the carpeting.
We have big plans for the family room. The closets take up too much wall space and limit furniture placement, so they'll be eliminated.
And there currently isn't good access to the big backyard, so we're planning on a french door to get outside.
We think this was the original first floor bedroom. In our new plan, this could be used as an office or a bedroom.
This little room has lots of potential for the future owner. Just not sure how best to use it yet.... For now, we're calling it 'The Study'
Here is the bathroom. I actually like the vanity, it makes great use of the space. But I think we might swap out the countertop! Although orange is a trendy color right now :-)
|Window to the Laundry Room|
This is currently a 2 bedroom house. The second bedroom is at the top of the stairs.....but it only works for people under 5'4" tall. Whenever we meet with contractors, we all end up huddled in the skylight opening to stand upright!!
The basement: Guess what will be our first project? Correct!!! Basement waterproofing. This is what it looked like when we got a lot of rain the other week. Good thing we have experience :-)
So, what do you think? Do you see possibilities? I'd love to hear your thoughts!!!
