Renovation Update

Feb16th2016

Hello all! Things are coming along at the acreage….here’s an update on our progress!

IMG_4725

First door hung! Just the casing along the perimeter needs to be added on.

Look at that wood detail!

IMG_4733

Doors for the upper floor.

IMG_4727

That’s a piece of drywall sitting in front of the barn door….should have moved it for the photo, but this is the finished barn door from the hallway to the sunroom.

Designed and made as a special surprise for us from Rick, he knew how much I wanted to bring some chevron into the house and went ahead and produced this stunning door. How nice is that? He’s now making a matching mini dutch door for the mudroom.

Ceiling work in the family room almost completed. There is a white trim that will cap the braces (shown in raw wood) going towards the middle. A square diamond shaped cap will be applied to the centre and then we have a ceiling fan to be mounted on top of it.

These babies are outer corner pieces for the family room ceiling (there’s a fourth one not shown). They remind me of waves of water….

Fireplace has been painted in a semi-gloss white. Window trims yet to be installed. This room will be our primary family space. I made some wonderful large carpet pillows to flank the hearth!

IMG_4731

View from the family room into the kitchen area. A long counter with cabinetry will stretch across under the kitchen window with a farm sink in the middle. I’ve always dreamed of an old fashioned farm sink! So excited! There will be a live edge eating bar coming part way across the opening (on the left side) open into the family room with a couple of stools.

Down into the basement here. The metal support columns are now boxed in and awaiting the paint finish.

IMG_4737

Basement laminate flooring looking good! I opted for a subtle modern look down here…some metallics such as the chrome light fixture picks up some sparkle. I want to use chrome in the kitchen adjacent to the dining area as well.

IMG_4743

Dining area for the kitchen suite. I love the view…there’s often squirrels running about just outside the window.

IMG_4738

Floor picks up some soft greys and taupes.

IMG_4739

Our painters worked hard to do a complimentary match to the floor finish on the doors and casings. They look great!

IMG_4753

Temporary stairs leading to the upper floor coming out next week to install floating stairs.

IMG_4749

Heading upstairs to the bedroom level.

IMG_4751

Light sconces from Restoration Hardware.

IMG_4745

This is a smaller bedroom which has no closet. I have a large antique wardrobe I’m going to place in here, a lovely feminine style table desk with chair and make this room into a linen storage and sewing room.

IMG_4748

LOVE the light pattern from this chandelier in the grandbabies room!

IMG_4755

Still in the grandbabies room. Planning on a shoe closet on the left side, a girl’s dream come true! The right closet will have a slide in chest of drawers with upper hanging area.

IMG_4752

Upstairs guest bath. I put this wardrobe storage piece in to consider whether it will be useful…not sure, it may interfere with the shower entrance…..decision yet to be made.

IMG_4756

Master bathroom tiling now done. Awaiting vanities, mirrors and additional lighting.

IMG_4759

Master bathroom walk in shower is ready for glass.

IMG_2535

That wraps up this weeks progress and we are so looking forward to finishing up some of the details. The basement and upper floor is really coming along and once they are done we can section them off and focus on the main level. Still lots to tackle including the kitchen which is as always the hub of a house. I’m so glad we have been able to work with an astounding team that allows us to make decisions along the way. I find (for me anyways) that making decisions and seeing the outcome before moving to the next decision is so helpful. Until next time…god bless!

Hello my friends! Just a little update on the progress of our renovation project. The doors for the main floor and upper level are almost complete. The finish on these particular doors is a match to the DuChateau hardwood that we’ve chosen. You can see the sample sitting on top of one of our doors in the picture. It took a 7 layer process to get this finish but we nailed it! There is still a french style trim to go along the inside framing of all the doors. I’ve picked the hardware as well which is an oval crystal knob on an oval satin nickel plate. It’s going to be stunning!

Here is a door with a piece of the baseboard laying on top of it plus the hardwood floor sample.

The inside edge will have a french moulding applied (which isn’t shown).

The wood grain shows so beautifully!
