Look at that difference! 🔥 I am so excited about this space. We (let’s be real...Alex) removed the old roof which was slanted and covered in asphalt, and it gave us about 16 inches more head height. We also added electrical, and a subfloor to prep for the real finishing. Alex built stairs so we no longer have to use the steep ladder to access it! 👏 We’re hoping to have this space totally done in the next couple months so we will have room for guests, an office, and nice storage. Can’t wait to be done!
DECISION TIME. Alex and I are having the hardest time deciding whether or not to paint this trim white. I fell in love with the classic dark trim, but now that we have different finishes in the kitchen, it clashes with out countertop and wood ceiling (which we’ve decided to keep wood for now). Check out our story to hear more about our dilemma and to cast your vote!
We are in the process of putting in faux beams in the kitchen, and it’s really coming along. You can see when we took the wallpaper off the ceiling, there were gaps in the ceiling boards, so we decided faux beams would be a great way to hide those and add some character. One down, one to go! #diy#woodwork#carpentry#homeremodel#fauxbeams
👏🏼👏🏼 I am SO happy to see these cabinets go in...Alex is a woodworking rockstar and makes all of my home dreams come true! I love how it draws the eyes to the window and ties all of the cabinetry together. We decided to save 💰 and buy used cabinets which only cost us $550 total! It just meant Alex had a couple custom cabinets to fill in the holes, but it’s almost like the layout was made for our kitchen. They’re old and not even close to perfect, but we love them. 👌🏼 #diy#homeremodel#renovation#seattle#carpentry
