OK, I’m going backwards, I know, but I’ll start with our latest project because its the one I’m most excited about….well, other than the kitchen, but only because THIS project means we are ALMOST FINISHED!
For the past 2 1/2 years we’ve used our 570 square foot sunroom as a storage room! We just didn’t have the funds to tackle such a HUGE project and it took us a while to save up for this one. The walls and foundation were eaten up with termites, and the roof was leaky. A tree had fallen on this room before we bought the house, and apparently sat there for quite a while before anyone noticed.
This room had to be gutted to the studs, much of the subfloor and supports replaced, and a new beam put in the ceiling. Its coming together, and I absolutely love this room so far…. it will be such a great family room!
The best features are the HUGE windows removed from an old church, french doors onto our new deck, the super high vaulted ceiling….but the most awe-inspiring part of this room, however, is the twenty or so feet of closets with tons of built-in shelves. Closets are valuable space in ANY home, but ESPECIALLY one built in 1929! We have more than doubled our total closet space! How exciting is that???
