Home Reno Updates

Hey y'all! I'm coming in hot and sharing all things demo day related today on the blog. Even though they can only focus on the new 'old' house for two solid days a week, things are really progressing and its seriously exciting! 

We've made some changes to the master bath layout which has increased the floor space in there making it way more functional. Basically there was going to be a breezeway or hall way so to speak that would connect our room to the bathroom and master closet. We've now opened up the wall to the master bath so that instead of walking onto the hall, you'll walk directly into the bathroom from the bedroom and then on through to the master closet. We've installed the upstairs tubs and picked out the vanities, toilets, faucets etc. because plumbing is underway this week.

We're so close to starting the custom cabinet process and this by far has been my favorite part. I finalized the layout of the kitchen and below are some generated pics so y'all can see how the finished product will look. The island will be in the center and will be 5' by 8'. I'll still have some of my favorite display cabinets and I am thrilled with the butler's pantry/wet bar area. Don't mind the colors - they aren't depicted in the pictures but for reference I've included my #1 inspiration kitchen pic below the layout photos. Also, the wet bar will not be smurf blue (haha) think more along the lines of our last home's kitchen with the grayish blue cabinets. (I adored that look and want to carry it on to this new home) OH! And we are having the cuuutest custom pineapple transom made for the back porch kitchen door - y'all...swoon! 

custom transom - love!

Lastly, all of the porch columns have been replaced and put up and the porch is starting to show her true beauty! The paint will come later but the support was definitely needed. The roofers also start next week and we are so pumped! We leave for the beach on Saturday so weather permitting, we should come back to some slight progress on that front. (Windows and siding are just about finalized as well - see inspiration pic below)  As usual, stay tuned and keep the good reno vibes coming and I'll share more after next week!
