Before there was Demo….
It’s been ten days since we began demo on our master bedroom (first mentioned here). The plaster part of the demo is 90% complete. All that’s really left is the removal of the brick load bearing wall and knocking out the existing studs.. But before I reveal the awful disaster zone we currently call home, I’ll show you what it looked like before destruction….also know as B.D. (not really).
The floor plan looked something like this:
I took these before pictures the night before we began demo so half our stuff was already moved (like our clothes) into a spare bedroom. So….these are ‘sorta what our bedroom liked like before’ before photos.
Dressing room/vanity/bath (behind the door):
Not-so master bath:
Michelle’s closet (notice the “One Shoe Can Change Your Life” plaque? It found a new (temporary home):
Hall to Master (3 closets in this area!):
Ante room/wasted “hall” space outside 2 of the guest rooms:
Foyer/Hallways to the bedrooms:
Unfortunately(?) our house looks nothing like this anymore. Did you ever see the Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck movie “Gigli”? Yeah, me neither, but I suspect our house is a bigger disaster than the movie.
We moved our bed, dressers, tv, etc…into a guest room down the hall (aka Heather’s room), which is fortunately a very large room. Our goal is to only live in this awkward state for the next 2 months….wish us luck on that one!
