Second Floor Remodel Begins


I'm so happy to tell you that our itty bitty and very old
 second floor bathroom is no more.
This project has been on our list since we moved
to this house five years ago.


The bathroom was located right above our front door so we had the idea 
 to add a dormer window to create more room and ceiling height.

So what looked like this until recently . . .


. . . now looks like this!


I'm so excited to be getting this done!


I think the changes are going to add a lot of charm and character to our house
and I'm all about charm and character!!



The little roof over the door is going to be a portico with brackets ~
there won't actually be any posts.

Here is what the bathroom looked like before . . .


. . . and this is what the same space looks like now.


There is still a lot more to be done but it is thrilling
 to be this far in the process.
I'm getting a lot of ideas for the bathroom as well as
 the exterior of our house.


On the outside, I'm thinking maybe some additional landscaping, possibly 
a new front door, shutters, window boxes . . . oh, and maybe a front
porch that is not crumbling would be nice too!

If you have any ideas or suggestions for me, 
please let me know ~ I really would like your opinion
because I know what good taste you all have!

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for 
taking a look at our latest project!

I know this is a little more than a tweak but I didn't think
 Brenda would mind if I joined her party ~
she's nice like that, you know!

  4. Very nice! The dormer really added a lot of space and it looks so cute from the outside! It took us about 10 years to get our old house in shape. It was so frustrating that we had to do the roof, get a new furnace, etc., before we could redo rooms. So five years isn't that long to me!! Good luck!

    XO,
