So it’s been awhile since I have given an update and a lot has been going on!!! Drywall is up, counters and cabinets have been measured and ordered, and flooring is curing at the house ready to be installed! Move in day is quickly approaching but this whole project is coming together nicely. Just want to share a few photos with you!!
I think we knew from the moment that we stepped inside our house that this was “our home” and everyday we keep finding new and exciting things that make us fall in love with this house over and over again.
So on a recent trip to the house I stumbled across a sewing machine that I was hoping the workers had found in the house so that I could keep it!!
Finally after a few days it made its way over to our townhouse so I can keep it safe until we move in.
I did a small amount of research that suggests it was a Singer sewing machine manufactured sometime around 1910-1912 with about 40,000-50,000 units being made.
Apparently it is supposed to be mounted into a table or box of some sorts. But that is just gauging from a picture I took off google images
I am really stoked that it seems to be 100% intact and functional, minus the box, and it even had a needle still loaded in it!!!
This one is gonna need some TLC but I don’t know if I should try to have someone restore it, just clean it up and gloss it with all the character it has now, or give it a whole new makeover and bring it into 2016 the right way!!!!
Took a ride by the house early this morning. Nothing going on today construction wise just because it’s Sunday but I couldn’t help enjoying some time out on our property!! I wanted to share some pics of our gorgeous sunroom that I can wait to fill with colorful blossoms come springtime!!!
Of course since I was off from work today we took a trip over to the house to check on the progress. Although no work has been done on the garage I wanted to share some photos of the garage for the “before” and soon I’ll have some “after” to show!!
We haven’t 100% decided on the use of this garage since it has so much potential. But once this gets some TLC I’m sure we will be able to find a use for it
So a few days I got a photo that made me fall in love with this house all over again!!!
This house was built in the 1930s. The room that was being used as the kitchen was actually an addition that was added later on. So the wall that was in between the kitchen and the living room was actually the back of the home and had a rear window as well. The dilemma was how to structurally remove this wall without jeopardizing the integrity of the rest of the house.
Well I finally got the photo that gave me the open concept kitchen, living, dining space that we were hoping for.
So of course I had to go by the house today I haven’t been in 2 days. lol. Anyway it is looking phenomenal!!! The dumpster is back and filled to the max and the upstairs rooms are completely gutted!!!! I cannot wait to see what happens next week!
