The Tear Down

In the last post I said there was a big project we’ve been working on. We are adding a shower area to our second bathroom! This bathroom was formerly a half bath and fairly small but now it will be a full bath. The area that we expanded back to was the former crawl space “room.” Yeah, the crawl space entrance had it’s own “room” and door in the garage devoted to it. LOL We moved the crawl space entrance to the cleaning supplies closet. As you can see in the pictures, we brought down the wall dividing the two rooms. We are in the process of filling in the former door entrance.

As you can see in previous posts, the location for the laundry items was moved to a former storage area. That move caused an empty area in the kitchen that needed to be filled. The former plumbing connections had to be covered over as well. We debated for a while for what would be best to put there.



We decided to put another set up white cabinets. More storage and counter space, yes!! The bottom cabinet was cut in order to match the height of the other cabinets.

We did a few small changes including putting up blinds in the kitchen and 3rd bedroom and changing out the old fans in the living room. We also finished up the flooring by adding in stained dividers to match the floor.

We found an awesome and practical addition for my work. A new desk! Well, new to me LOL. As you can see in the picture, it has a wood top with LOTS of space for my computer and other items. It has two drawers and the bottom area is painted black and a little worn. (adds that country look that I like ;-))In this picture, it has my(Margaret) BS degree from Purdue to give me some inspiration as I do my work endeavors.


Stay tuned to see the project we are working on in the other bathroom! Hint: It involves great smelling cedar wood. 😉
