Family Room Complete

I cannot believe that I have not blogged since May.  Shame on me.  Since we are getting ready to take on a new challenge, I figured before we start the adventure I should get everyone up to date on the House and where we are with this remodel.  This week I am hopeful that I can feature each complete room.   I will start with the family room.

Here it is the day we arrived back in town after many years of our home being rented.

 




A very old, worn and outdated room.


 

 
 
Where do you start. Well if you go back and read the blog from Week 1 you will see we started by tearing out the nasty carpet and went from there. Here is a recap..

 Carpet Gone



Over head beam facing and moulding taken down



Nails taken out and sub floor taken up





Insulation installed twice..first time George did it wrong..lol



One door opening enclosed and a new double door installed.



One of my favorite.  Old windows removed



New windows installed



Beams lifted..


Rafters and supports conected to beam



Painting

Plaster


And New Floor



We also installed moulding, doors and light fixtures. 
It was long and hard with ups and downs but this was the end result...
I hope you enjoy





















Thank you for stopping by and I hope you may get some inspiration or ideas from what we done for your own project..



What I have Learned

I love my Family Room

That there is light at the end of the tunnel after all
That my husband and I work well together
It took many hours of hard work
but
well worth it in the end


Until next time

It's perfect! The best living rooms have a lot of space for the family members to dwell in. That's a great place for wonderful conversation and family bonding! No need to leave during the weekends. Haha!

Remarkable, you're able to finish this bathroom, how long it took this bathroom to finish? Thanks.
