FInally finished

Just as we'd hoped, the upstairs apartment was finished in time for Sue to move in before Christmas. But it really was down to the wire.  We had to bring son Jamie over from Vancouver to help us with some of the sanding and painting and cleaning for the last few days.  Without his help we wouldn't have made it.  

Here are a few photos taken on Friday night as we were doing the final cleanup.  

And for contrast, here's one taken in early July when we were just starting.  The fridge is in the same place in the renovated kitchen shown below so you can see what a major change took place. Work included opening up behind the cupboards Harry's looking at to create a large laundry, storage room, opening up doorways and taking out a wall between the kitchen and living room.

The bathroom reno was an afterthought so I don't even have a "before" photo, but it's now very clean and contemporary and makes good use of  tight space.

It's been a long haul but we are pleased with the results and Sue is ecstatic. She's been having a tough time over the past couple of months with serious facial and jaw pain but we're hoping this living space upgrade will help set her on the road to recovery.
