Indiana Project: Interior Reveal

Its been over a month since the last of the subcontractors completed their work at the renovation of the Indiana house. Its high time we shared the final product.

Now here is the back of the house-

Before there was a dilapidated screened porch, overgrown shrubs and a strange roof structure built over the entrance in to the cellar. We called it the dog house.

Now for the interior-

Living Room-

The living room was a good sized room that needed some TLC and an adjustment to those built-ins around the fireplace. We took down the curvy trim and the upper portion of the built-ins and had the lower cabinets fitted with double glass doors to accommodate other electronics like DVD players. We knew the perfect and only spot for a television was over the fireplace. Our electrician punched in the right kind of cables, we ripped up that old carpet and refinished the floors and things were really looking up.

Dining Room-

The dining room was a non-descript room with two windows and a swinging door in to the kitchen. We opened the kitchen up and replaced those windows with a set of french doors that lead out on to our new deck.

Half Bath-

A half bath didn’t even exist. There was only one full bath on the first level which served as the master bath. We created a half bath out of a little borrowed space from the kitchen and a coat closet in the hallway. It was the perfect spot to squeeze in a powder room.

The Kitchen-

The kitchen was entirely re-structured due in large part to the relocation of the basement stairwell to the front of the house. The removal of the basement stairwell created an opportunity to open the kitchen to the dining room, create a pantry and shift the appliances around to create a wall of windows over the kitchen sink.

Laundry/Mudroom-

There was no laundry room before the remodel. We framed in a tiny screened porch on the back of the house off the kitchen and made it a great place for hanging coats, putting on shoes and doing laundry. The mudroom also exits out on to the new deck.

Master Bedroom-

We kept all of the original windows in this room, cleaned up the walls of course but most importantly we enlarged the room by a few feet and carved out our master suite, complete with a walk through closet a la Carrie Bradshaw.

A peek into the closet before it was filled with custom drawers, shelves and storage galore.

Master Bath-

The master bath was formed out of combination of a small den/office room and the existing full bath. The end result was a spacious master bath with a custom double vanity and a spa-like feel.

Upstairs Hall-

The upstairs hall was a strange and very narrow, awkward place that is difficult to illustrate through words or photos. The space was being hindered by knee walls and dysfunctional attic space. So we pushed back in to the attic, raised the ceilings and created a reading and storage nook.

Upstairs Bath-

Like the upstairs hall, the only bathroom upstairs was being hindered by attic space and slanted ceilings.  The second full bath in the house also lacked a shower and it was carpeted! We pushed back in to the attic here too but still had to deal with slanted ceilings. The end result however was a beautiful tub and shower combination and some more space to move around in.
