The interior portion of our project has been completed except for a few decor items to hang and finish up.
It has been a long and stressful 6 months but we finally made it to the finish line. Here are the downstairs photos:
Through the doors and on the other side of the fireplace is the sunroom. There used to be an nonworking heat pump/ac through the wall system in there. We took that unit out and put a small sliding window in its place that we framed out. We bought a few wire storage shelf units and a bunch of heavy duty storage bins. The sunroom is now a nice storage area. I cleaned out the attic and brought down all holiday related items along with some other things and organized it all. As I am getting older it would be getting harder and harder to go into the attic and drag stuff downstairs for use and then drag it back ustairs to be put in the attic. This sunroom solved that issue quite nicely.
We are thinking about doing something to the fireplace but not sure what treatment to do.
I have already swapped out the blind behind the tub for a blackout blind that matches the other 2 windows in the bedroom. I got the ttype of blackout blinds that have some insulating qualities to them plus you can either open the blinds from the bottom up, pulls the blinds open from the top down or both from the bottom and the top. This way you can allow light in but also have your privacy.
We bught this wall decor piece and hung it on the wall. Then bought some artificial flowers and put them in the basket. We have a metal sign coming in that says something like " Frash Flower Market" with an arrow pointing to the right. The sign will be put up just below the bicycle.
Now that the interior is complete for the most part, we will move on to get some exterior projects started. First off will be 3 motion activated security spotlights and security cameras. These will be going in tomorrow. Then there will be getting the roof, skylight and gutters completely replaced due to wind and hail damage. That project should be starting in a week or so. In the Spring we will be getting the front of the house painted. Eventually we will get a new TREX composite deck put in and possibly a whole house backup generator. Everything that we need or want done should be completed over the next 6 months but luckily it is all outside or exterior projects.
