Demolition has begun!
I can’t tell you how excited I was when these hardwood floors were revealed. We had NO idea the 110 year old original hardwood floors were there. My landlord was originally planning on putting in new carpet or laminate wood floors due to her budget, so this was a wonderful surprise! They’re so beautiful and in great shape – they’re getting refinished on Wednesday and I can’t wait to see how they turn out.
This is my front yard right now. Jealous? That pile of junk still holds all the original stench from the unit. Sooo happy to have it out!
This is where the units will be connected. I’m hoping my landlord will be open to the idea of removing this carpet as well. Those same hardwood floors are hiding under there, it’s painful to know that beautiful amazing wood flooring is just laying there going un noticed. I grow more and more resentful towards the carpet as the days pass.
This was their kitchenette which will soon be my new office! I’ve never had a proper office space and am so excited! Ive been using the dining room table as my office, I keep my huge desktop computer for editing there -which renders the table useless for all other purposes. I’ had been trying to figure out a solution for this ever since I moved in. At first I was considering trying to go in on a shared office space, but I’m not quite ready for that financially. My other idea was to clear out some space in the laundry room and put a small desk in. As a freelancer working from home, I think its really important to have a space that is dedicated to working. I’m planning on doing a built in desk, to maximize on space. My new office will be about 5 feet from the foot of my bed, so I’m going to make a no working in pajamas rule for myself – to help keep me in the ‘work’ set of mind.
This is my new dressing room where I will sit and gaze in the mirror and brush my hair one hundred times before bed.
The bathroom is getting a complete make over. Everything is getting replaced, from the walls down to the pipes! I found out I will not be getting a claw foot bath tub, sigh. Still excited for everything else we have in store though! Stay tuned for my bathroom inspiration post and in the meantime check out my pinterest board for the new addition here!
