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.
Living room alcove where the baby grand will reside.
The doors to the patio.
Standing in the kitchen looking at the fireplace and den to the right.
Living room view looking into kitchen. Note the new skylights. Even more natural light.
Guest bath shower alcove.
Guest bedroom. Door on the left goes into the bathroom; space in middle will become a closet.
From the garage entry looking over the stairs.
