Alright folks…here you go. I have created a slideshow of the renovations and updates we have made over the last couple of years to our downstairs; the biggest changes were to our kitchen and downstairs bathroom. We did everything ourselves, with a lot of help from friends and family, including Michael’s incredibly handy brother, Philip, who installed a new ceiling in the kitchen, all the trim in the kitchen and bathroom, and created the kitchen’s built-in space. We were able to accomplish all changes to our home on a tight budget, re-using and re-vamping what we already had. This allowed us to splurge on a new stainless steel fridge, new flooring, and new countertops! Please enjoy the fruits of our labour!
Hooray…I finally got my act together enough to present you with a HOUSE TOUR of our humble abode.
Well, a tour of the first floor anyways. Sorry, but you will need to wait a tad longer to see our home in its entirety. But hey, I’m doing you a favour — patience is a virtue, after all ;). I will post the floor plan and accompanying pictures of our upstairs (second floor) this upcoming Friday. I will also do a post about our house’s exterior and yard very soon.
without further delay…
Here’s the sitch — this is my first attempt at making a floor plan using floorplanner.com…needless to say, this is in no way exact. In the near future, I would love to update this floor plan to include our driveway and yard.
To help orient you, the front door is actually located at the side of our house, and the living room windows look out onto our front yard and street. Our house faces south = lots of sunshine in the front of the house. The colours used in the creation of this floor plan are simply to give you an idea of the current paint colours that came with the house (can you say Merry Christmas?).
