I added this picture at the end, and it got put first – go figure!! Any, this is the basement at the new place, with the bathroom and all the walls and ceiling torn out. It will have a small bedroom and a family room.
Now, the shed move.
Here is a before picture:
See how close to the house it is, and how it blocks the view?
This is basically from the same place, but with the shed gone. That smoke is our perpetually burning junk pile.
Now the new place – pictures of the dismantled interior.
This just shows how we pile it in different categories to take to the dumps or the landfill.
This is where the kitchen will go. The wall on the left will be removed, to open up the space. The wall with the black pipe will be opened on the right for a hallway and the rest moved back 2 feet for the bathroom behind it.
This is another of the wall that will be completely removed.
This wall will be backed up about three feet and have a hallway to the master suite. The stairs to the basement are behind that cabinet in the center. And the master closet will go on the left side of the picture.
The wall to be removed, from the other side. I am standing in what will be the living room. Dad is standing in the back entryway.
This is the window we found behind the tub surround in the bathroom. This will be opened to a door leading to a big butler’s pantry off the kitchen. I’m thinking a barn door would be cute here.
This shows the second bedroom upstairs and the closet Justin and Kylene started tearing out and we finished. That wall will be moved one foot towards us to allow room for a long master bath on the other side of it. The closet for this room will actually go over the window to the left because it looks funny with those unmatched windows.
This shows the inside of the wall we have to tear out to make room for two doors. This used to be an exterior wall before they added on. That isn’t going to be fun.
This shows what the former kitchen looks like now – we have some cabinets to haul home, yet. This space will become the master bedroom. The wall between the bedroom and master bath will go about in the middle of the door. We will have a window on both sides of the wall – one for the bath, over the shower, and one an egress window for this bedroom, because the other windows are too high to be egress windows. We didn’t want the door in a bedroom.
This one is taken from where the master bedroom closet will be, so we are looking through the wall that will be moved this way about three feet, toward the living room. The wall that will be completely removed is the one starting by where Dad is standing, so the area behind him will be the dining room and towards us from that will be the kitchen.
And, finally, here is the grass beginning to grow where we took out the awful tarp and rock contraption that they had on this little hill. If you look hard, you can see the cut-off rose bushes just above the grass and straw. They will be pulled out, too, once they get enough new growth to keep them healthy when I move them.
