We thought we were finished with renovations, but it wasn't to be. The upstairs of our house on Yukon is a funky one-bedroom apartment that we've rented to students and young people for the past 30 years.
Here's what the kitchen looked like. Kind of cute but definitely funky.
Now we're embarking on a major upgrade, with the help of our friend Sue. She has done lots of renos over the years and is going to help us with the final one, to get the space ready for her to live in.
The main change will be the removal of the wall between the kitchen and the living room to create one large living space. This will allow light from all directions and enable a creative floor plan for kitchen and living.
This is the wall looking from the living room . . . . . and the kitchen.
The renovation started yesterday when Harry pulled out the arborite counter to find this ancient wallpaper.
The renovation will also require new drywall, new flooring, cupboards and maybe an island, plus updated plumbing and electrical. We're going to spend the rest of the summer working on it. I'll keep you posted.
PS: Are we crazy?
