After many months, we are finally finished with this renovation! We took our sweet time with it since midway through the project the owner decided not to rent or sell it upon completion, but to move her family into it while they renovate another, much larger home for the next 9 months. They are set to move in within the next couple of weeks.
To say that this house has changed is quite an understatement. It has completely transformed, and, I hope, taken on the "modern charm" I was aiming to impart with all of the selections. The owner granted me full control over the selections (but still with a conservative budget... it'll eventually be a rental, after all!), so it was a pleasure to have the freedom to execute my vision from the beginning. I wanted it to be fresh, bright and modern, yet still charming, made possible by adding a few vintage details that tie into the preserved items, such as the original windows.
The bathroom renovation is also complete. You probably can't tell from the "Before" photo, but there was a 20 lb tortoise living on a straw bed under the vanity! We took the bathroom down to the studs, so everything in there is all new and fresh, while the basic footprint remained the same.
Thanks for reading! I wish my client the best of luck as she and her family moves in... Did I mention she and her husband have 4 children and that this is just over 1000 square feet and a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house? Their time here will surely be a lesson in living minimally. I'm secretly looking forward to seeing how my choices handle the wear and tear ahead! :-)
