A look back at what we started with.
< < < < < < > > > > > >
Work is finally beginning on the inside of the house and we decided to start with the master bathroom. This way we would have one nice bathroom before we tore out the old one. Here is what it looked like before.
This is a view of the room looking in from the doorway of what will become our master bedroom. The room above was originally listed as a bedroom, but it is very small, so we decided to make it our master bathroom/closet. The room that will become our master bedroom was originally a living room, or parlor. There were two front doors off the porch so we assume one door was where guests were greeted and escorted into the parlor. We have closed the one front door off that goes into our new bedroom and just have one front door that will go into our living room.
In between these two living areas are two big, beautiful pocket doors that we will eventually replace with new ones.
The first wall that came down was the one in this small bedroom that originally was a closet. I love the overhead light in this closet and hope to get it rewired and use it somewhere else in the house.
