Complete Transformation of Pre-War Condo!
Our first home has a railroad layout that just isn't functional for my husband and I. The bedroom is located at the narrowest end of the unit where the width is 8.5 feet, the kitchen is very large but does not have any counter space, and we have TWO full bathrooms crammed into the 650sqft unit which is completely unnecessary! This on top of the 100-year old plumbing and electric means a complete gut renovation is needed to make this a functional home for us and for the family we plan to start in the near future. If you are interested in being a part of my project, please feel free to give (no gift is too big or too small!) and follow my blog documenting our journey. I know this will be a learning experience for us all! If you are a company and would like to sponsor, I will be advertising your company here and on my blog as well as referring you to my clients. Thank you everyone. I'm very excited to be a part of the community! Below is the current floor plan and my proposed floor plan. I have had 2 licensed contractors come through and scope out the job and they have told me the floor plan should be possible. I have been quoted $75,000 to complete the project. Here are the steps we will be taking: Step 1: Get an official plan drawn up by an architect Step 2: Apply for permits Step 3: Demolition Step 4: Structural carpentry Step 5: HVAC ductwork, electrical, and plumbing Step 6: Insulation Step 7: Drywall Step 8: Flooring Step 9: Windows Step 10: Fine carpentry Step 11: Painting
