A lot has been happening in the Sanderson family. In the last month we have sold our house, moved out, moved in with my parents, went to Jamaica, bought house, and we are starting renovations on our new house tomorrow.
We are getting settled in with my parents and once demo starts tomorrow hopefully everything will continue to move along and we will be in by Christmas.
The house we chose was built in the 70's. A sweet older couple were the original owners and her husband passed away. She moved into assisted living and her daughter's sold the house.
Everything in the house is from when it was built. It's never been updated.
We have met with a general contractor and it's going to be the most amazing house. It's like we are starting over with just the bones of the home. Here's the 3D model of all the changes. They are just of the downstairs because the upstairs is just going to need some paint and redo the bathrooms. Nothing structural.
We are knocking down the interior wall of the kitchen that includes a wet bar and a powder bath to open up the downstairs. The powder bath is being moved to the formal dining room which we are making a play room. You can see the powder bath and play room in the picture below right to the right when you come in the front door.
This is the most amazing house for us.
It has 5 bedrooms on a third of an acre. Such a beautiful backyard.
We are also redoing our master bath because right now there is a vanity in my bedroom. Yep. A sink. In my bedroom. That needs to go away. Like yesterday.
We are closing in that opening to be the bathroom doors and then inside in the bathroom is going to be so amazing!
There will be a tub under the sink. Just haven't picked it out yet. And there will be a cabinet between the sinks and individual mirrors. I got that inspiration from here, but I plan to move the cabinet on the left in between the sinks.
To give you a little perspective, our vanity is 9 feet long. Every girls dream!
And my favorite part of our bathroom is the fact that my closet has a door attached to my laundry room. Ahh! So amazing!
They are also giving me a laundry shoot from upstairs down into the laundry room.
I can't wait to give updates throughout the process and then an unveiling of our new home.
