House Reno 2013

Category: Journal

As some of you know we had put our house up for sale. This was due to the road out front being punched through to the next community and a new sub division going in. This turns our quiet neighbourhood into a sum what busier one and was the reason for wanting to move. In trying to sell we could not find anything we really liked unless we spent money we were not comfortable spending and still and found that we just couldn’t replace our yard and surroundings which we have fell in love with. So in short we took the house off the market and decided to do a significant reno.

The big reno basically turns our never used sun room into a master bedroom with ensuite and walk in closet. This is big improvement over our tiny 3 piece bathroom although does leave slightly smaller bedroom. Additional to this we are tearing out a wall downstairs to open things up a little and replacing the old dated wall board off. Below are the areas in question. Sorry for the really bad iPhone photos.

Last week the work began and has left our house a bit on the chaotic side. There is a mess everywhere and things moved around and out of place. Guess this is how it will be for the time being, I do have to say it is extremely hard to even keep the areas we are living in away from the reno in order.

The work thus far are included the demo of the sunroom, leveling of the floor, initial framing and the tearing down of the wallboard. This week the framing will be completed along with plumbing, hopefully electrical and of course any other surprises along the way. So far things on the construction have been smooth.

In a week I will post another update!
