Sunroom

Good morning! 

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!!!  

Here is a side view from the porch
  
I love the cranks! cannot wait to open them and smell the fresh air!
  
Hand cranks to open the little windows

The detached garage

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 

A view from the front. Waiting on new doors to come in.
  
We believe the previous owner was a mechanic and ran his business out of this garage.
  
Just more of the interior.
  
Something cool I think we will clean up and just keep for looks.
  
Here was a sliding window that connects to a small room in the back.

Open concept come true

So a few days I got a photo that made me fall in love with this house all over again!!!

Back Story::

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.

 

This is the before with the wall in between the kitchen and living room. closed in and stuffy.
  
During the demo. see the cutout for the old window??
  
this is the view from inside the kitchen towards the living room. the old rear of the home.
  
open concept dreams do come true!! so open and beautiful
