New House Part 2

New House Part 2...

Laundry Room and Pantry Door 
We were told they would take the washer and dryer, but they didn't so we got to unhook and put them in the garage to sell them on Craigslist later
We put in OUR washer and dryer, new shelves, flooring, organization, paint, and new door on the pantry.  Also there was a small closet in the laundry room that had a rack in it we decided to remove doors and put in a shelf unit!


Living room
We kept the fan, but the light and fan have to be on at the same time ugh!  So we took out the light bulbs might have to replace?  
We painted, new floors, added curtains and new sliding glass doors

Work in progress...

All done

This wall had plumbing done from the original that had to be replaced...it's the wall when you go from living area to kitchen on the other side of it.  Floor redone, ceiling, baseboards, paint, outlets, entire kitchen etc...

Great Changes!  

New... Cabinets, Paint, Tile Floor, Granite Tops, Corbels under seating area (also made that edge larger to have more space to serve or eat), Sink, Disposal, Faucet, Plumbing, and Pantry Doors
However we didn't get new appliances they seem to work just fine (thank God!)

We were told top of the line cabinets were in there back in 1991, but they defiantly needed updating w/ some that were broken, sticky, cracked etc... We didn't replace appliances (yet) maybe one day.  We extended the 'seating bar' area to be bigger.  A friend gave us corbels to dress up the look instead of the white wood underneath.  The counters were granite and we replaced with a lighter color granite.  Painted trim, walls and replaced pantry door, floors, but left the configuration the same.


The Kitchen Sink was a Disaster!  The faucet had water leaking out the top area and under the sink was even worse!  Mold and a gaping hole!  Gross!

New Faucet and New Sink and  New Plumbing
And no more mold and holes.
Nice new counter tops!

Far door in the photo was the door to the kids bathroom which we decided to close in
