For those of you who may have missed the news, we bought a house! In Kansas! On the internet! Yes, you can buy houses on the internet. You can buy anything on the internet, duh. Needless to say, it is a total renovation and a huge undertaking but we’re so excited.
We have to be out of our apartment in less than 40 days, and there is still so much to be done. Like what, you say? Well here is a bit of a list:
- Move the current kitchen to the dining room and the dining room to the kitchen
Close the random side door that goes outside from the kitchen Literally tear down everything Close the sunroom to make an office
- Refinish all the hardwood floors
- Add a bathroom in the Master
- Completely renovate the downstairs bath
All new windows Exterior paint
- Interior paint
- Master closet
- Adding a laundry room above the garage and a door that goes to said room off of the upstairs loft
- New slider in the kitchen
- Add a door in the kitchen to the garage
In the meantime, I thought you would enjoy to see some pictures of the before because everyone loves a shit show, right? Below is a photo from the kitchen now looking into the “new kitchen”.
It’s pretty, isn’t it? The fridge came with the joint. Needless to say, we’re totally designing around that piece. It is a real showstopper. We stole about 2′ from the wall on the left from the downstairs bath because I would rather have a bigger kitchen than a guest bath. #decisions
This is the “old kitchen” and it was super small and gross and I can’t even. This will be the dining room. Since the photo below was taken, we have knocked out the wall to the right of the door (that is the one that is stupid and is gone) so that the stairs are open and it doesn’t feel as cramped.
I will obviously be live blogging this whole process, with updates to come as we have them. There should be a lot going on in the next coming weeks, so get ready for the big reveal sometime in September. Until then, check back here for these amazing before photos because everyone loves a good before photo.
