Kent Village Remodel – Drywall

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Drywall has been hung and wow, this residence has taken a night-and-day change for the better.  Below are some pictures.

Above:  Looking into the den and out to the courtyard.  We opened the door from a small 3′ opening to a 9′ opening.  I knew light would come in but didn’t realize how much.  Light now floods from both sides into the living space.

Standing in the den looking at the fireplace wall.  The last bit of drywall to be installed.

Looking at the front door.  To the left is the fireplace which has been covered to keep dust off the newly laid rock.

Master bathroom.  To the left is the new shower footprint.  To the right of the half wall will be the vanities.

Looking at the master bedroom fireplace wall.  This is same fireplace as the den.

Looking at the garage entry.  Love having the stairs opened up.

Standing in the living room alcove looking into the den and the entry wall that will be the cabinetry to include the bar, desk, storage and coat closet.  Note that the stair walls have been removed.

Project: Kent Village Remodel – Construction

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

The Kent Village project in the process of demolition.  Most walls have been removed but the old electrical and plumbing remain.  The pile carpet has been torn out to reveal old parquet floors.

Standing in the entry hall (behind the fireplace) looking into baths.

This may be one of my favorite pictures.  I love that the chandelier is still hanging in the guest bath/powder.  You can also see the old plumbing for the shower on the left.  Look how LOW that shower head is.

Looking down the hall into the master bath and bedroom.

Looking from the fireplace and front door back at the dining room and kitchen.

And a bit closer…Notice the framed stairwell.  That will be gone soon but it was discovered to be a load bearing wall.  So, for now, it stays until our metal beam is ready.  The wall to the left of the stair will be that great functioning wall of cabinetry.  Next up?  Selecting materials!
