The two biggest flaws of this house are 1. lack of closet space and 2. a small master bathroom. We plan on tackling both these problems before we move-in. Other than that, we plan on taking it one step at a time, and doing most of the work ourselves, as we are on a MAJOR budget. We spent a big chunk of change to close on this baby so please don't expect an overnight transformation.
|Another kitchen view|
Where do I begin? Granite. Not my style. Cabinets. Laminate is peeling off. Appliances. Well let's just say there is a nest of dead roaches in the oven and the dishwasher is seriously ancient.
Nice french door leading to the pool. Kinda sucks the dining room is right off the kitchen. It is totally messing with our design ideas.
Looks like a not too shabby bathroom, right? Well, it's right off the living room. I don't know, but personally I think it is weird to have a shower in the general bathroom facility.
|Master Bedroom Closet|
Master bedroom is quite small, but that is cool with me. I never really understood why people are so obsessed with having large master bedrooms....it's not like we hang out in that room. What does concern me is the itty, bitty closet. Have no fear! We have some plans for expanding our closet space. The carpeting is going bye-bye as well.
Small master bedroom = small master bathroom. There isn't much we can do here, but we do have some ideas. Let's just say it has something to do with the master bedroom's closet.
Lil' rascals get the biggest room in the house! Guess its only fair considering they are sharing. Obviously the carpet has to go, and there will be some other changes going on in here.
A shot of the hallway from the kids room. Believe it or not, big changes will be going on in that hallway. More on that later.
All in all, that's pretty much it. It's a small ol' house and who knows what the BIG plan is. At first we bought it as an investment; something we can slowly fix up and eventually rent out. But the more time we spend talking about all our plans for "This Shack," the more we believe we might be here long term. We shall see. Demo starts soon and I will be sure to share pics with you. Please, please, please feel free to leave suggestions in the comment box. As you all may know, I am the most indecisive gal EVER! I would love to hear some of your ideas for this place!!!
