Pre-Renovation Pictures, Upstairs

I hope you enjoyed the tour of the main level… Now it’s time to take you upstairs.

Our Cape is a traditional Cape with 2 bedrooms and a bath upstairs. We remodeled this bath in the Summer of 2011 and I still love it so not much is changing.

The window is going away because my bedroom will be on the other side of this wall.

It’s a small bathroom, so that means small sink vanity and low profile toilet. But it’s the kids bathroom so… moving on.
This is the view looking out into the hall; you can see a peek into Emily’s room. I don’t believe this part of the hall is changing, but it will have to match the new part of the hall that will take you to my new bedroom and I’m not sure what that will look like. I do know that light fixture will not be staying.

Here’s Emily’s room.

She has the biggest room in the house… but not for long. 🙂

That corner on the right is being bumped out so the built ins will be gone.

And that window will be gone. But she will still have 2 closets and what little girl wouldn’t love 2 closets.

The left is where the bump out is happening so this little alcove will become a nice big wall. In her current room there is only one place to put the bed, so this bump out will give her more furniture placement options.

She is also getting a dormer window here in the front. The current crawlspace is getting smaller and we plan not to fill it up with as much junk so I’m ok with that.

I have always loved this pale yellow color. Emily has big plans to paint a mural so who know what color the walls will end up.

You can see a little peek into Ben’s room across the hall.

And I really love the wood floors in her room. I’m not sure how the bump out and dormer window will affect her floors, but I’m really hoping we can do hardwood through the entire upstairs.

That window will be replaced with a new window.

Here we are in Ben’s room.

This room is really changing.
This slanted dormer is going to become another peak.

So basically, this entire downward slope will be peaked with another ‘V’. It’s hard to explain, but he will get more headroom.

His room is also moving towards the front of the house. The new ‘V’ dormer will allow his room to slide forward. The place where I’m standing to take this picture will be the new hallway to my bedroom! To the left of me is where my new laundry room will be.

See that window, that will be the door into my master bedroom. It is going to be Huge! And there will be a master bath with a jet air tub. The tub was the first thing I picked out. Priorities.

Ben’s current closet is narrow and deep. In his new room, he will have a long, normal depth closet. And that window will be replaced with a new one.

Half hallway, half laundry room. Can you picture it?

Ben wants an orange room, can you imagine? I think we will end up with some shade of blue with orange accents. He also wants Buzz Lightyear bedding so if you see any for a full size bed, let me know.

Enough before, I’m ready to start showing some pictures of Progress!
