First phase of interior remodel
Here’s what we did to start this remodel
This was the first phase of a recent remodel project. Depending on your final design you can sometimes break a remodel project into phases or stages to get exactly what you want in the end while budgeting the costs over time. This phase included removing a couple walls from the dining room and coat closet from the front entry. This took away the “hallway” approach into the home opening the flow from the front door past the front room, dining area and into the kitchen.
This involved altering the framing, relocating wall switches, electrical outlets to other walls, sheetrock, texture and paint. Wood flooring was installed through this area and carried through the bedroom access hallway, kitchen, family room, laundry and half bath. The wood floor installation was planned ahead for easy continuation of flooring on the next phase.
The half bath was also remodeled during this phase. A “mud room door” was removed from the exterior wall which was re-framed to include installing a new window in place of the door. Stucco patched on the exterior, sheetrock replaced and textured on the inside. The standard box vanity was replaced with a console bathroom sink.
A couple new prehung doors were also installed. New garage entry door with operable window, and new 6 panel fire rated door at garage/interior entrance.
Next phase planned will include lengthening the front room, sacrificing a bedroom space and hall cabinets alcove for the extra square footage. We’ll tie in the wood floor and it will appear as it was all done at the same time. I’ll update this page with a direct link to that second phase soon….stay tuned.
As promised here’s a follow up….Second phase completed
