New Renovation Blog – Project James

Posted by Gillian Gillies | 28 Nov, 2011 | No Comments on New Renovation Blog – Project James

I must admit I love blogging about home renovations; there is nothing like giving people the insiders view into all the workings (well the carefully edited ones) in a project.

This home is approx. 90 years old and it has an entrance foyer, living, dining and kitchen with small study area at the rear. On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. In the basement there is a family room, laundry & bathroom. We have amazing plans for this space. It’s all about maximising square footage and turning this into a great home for a very active family of four.

Our plans include extending the entrance foyer to accommodate lots of concealed hanging and shoe storage and levelling of the back of the house to create an inviting main floor family room and on the second floor adding a master en-suite and walk-in closet.

The demolition has been completed and now we are working on the structural changes required to open up the kitchen to the dining room.

In the basement we are installing the plumbing for the new shower room and laundry room. This is also giving up the opportunity to gain a little more head space.

The basement bathroom ceiling looked visually low due to the cast iron pipes that ran beneath the joists. These have been removed and our bathroom is going to look amazing.

Nothing like starting with a clean slate!
