Final plans, framing and of course more demo

Lots of progress in the past two weeks. Plans have been finalized and and we got our building permit! So now along with more demo we can start some actual building!!

1) Finalized layout plans

The stairs caused us a lot of problems. We could never quite figure out where to put them so that they would leave us an open kitchen and look okay with the upstairs layout. In the end we decided to keep them in their original place and make them a little wider. This lead us to reconfigure the kitchen and rethink the front door and entry way.

2) Creepy basement no more

French drains were installed, rotten beams replaced, and 4 inches of gravel poured, all we need is the concrete slab in place and the basement will be done. It might not be suited for William’s famous club 18 Barrington Basement raves but, it will be a lot less creepy and good enough for storage and laundry.

3) Framing

All of the framing for the upstairs bedrooms is in place. The pictures don’t really do the space justice but, walking through you can really get a sense of how everything is going to look. All three bedrooms are sizable and have nice closets framed out. The upstairs living room is also a nice size and is going to get such great light. We decided to nix the master bathroom and just have one really nice, big, main bathroom–space for a pedestal tub and walk in shower!
