Now that we are two weeks in and pretty much done with demo, we are figuring out the art of renovation timing.
For us, a deck off the living space is a must, and something we expect will also be a good return on our investment.
We are a few days into demo and it's moving fast! After working for months on plans and approvals it’s really satisfying to see progress.
Our first choice of contractor was a bit too expensive for our budget so we decided to bid out the job.
We are happy to say that with the help from our amazing architect we have gotten approval on the project to start swinging hammers!
So our challenge in adding a guest bathroom is to make something that will be brand new fit with the house and our style.
We plan on building a deck on the parlor level and the mudroom below it has been causing us a few problems.
We need to build a wall to separate our apartment from the rental unit and we're trying to figure out where.
We knew coming into this project that the house itself would present problems of its own, but expected that dealing with the DOB would be one of the more frustrating parts of the process.
We’re leaning toward the larger kitchen and sacrificing the powder room to the renovation gods.
