As you saw in the previous posts the kitchen and laundry / half bath projects will be the biggest transformations aka WORK in this house. If you’re just joining the journey here are the previous posts:
This transformation is what I am most excited about! Who knew that being an adult meant finding immense excitement in mudrooms?! Who am I?! I showed you the before photos (take a peek back here) and here are the renderings for what we have planned.
As I mentioned in this previous post, there is an addition off of the kitchen and dining room. It looks like the space was either a “breakfast” area (which is how we labeled in the original floor plan), place to play cards, etc. Immediately I asked if we could add a half bathroom and laundry room here, as the only bathroom in the house is upstairs and who wants to have people over use the upstairs, personal bathroom? I sure don’t!
Here is a look at what the floor plan looks like on the first floor. As I mentioned in the previous post, opening up walls and reconfiguring spaces is a main thrill in life. While this move is frowned upon by traditional house flippers, when you don’t have to pay for manual labor, it makes a-ok financial sense. “They say” a kitchen can sell a house and while we cannot open the kitchen to the living room, without the house collapsing and or relocating a staircase, we can open it up to the dining room and make it open enough for entertaining!
