Got to love surprises whilst renovating. Ripped up floorboards to find the outside decking runs into the house. Tiles are hopefully going in in the next couple of weeks. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1435375909.730542.jpg
@ExcuseMyFrench I would if you can knock through to the bedroom next to the kitchen, given the pipes etc are already there you might be able to move the layout to an island type set up provided the wall isn't structural. I'd then covert your living room to the size of the bedroom and leave whatever is left to an open plan area provided it could be functional, or just have a massive bedroom.
Provided walls aren't structural/load bearing and you can move your internal plumbing inside not through the air space you should have some room to move.
We've lived in apartments for 15yrs and some of the renos people have done are amazing.
We had our third meeting with a kitchen company today and got to see our plans / designs, pick colours and finishes and got a price. Pretty happy with the price, as long as our appliances are what we've estimated then we will be in budget. We have also estimated $10k for floor tiling as it is a huge area but the kitchen guy said he thinks it would be down near 7k. Which is good because we want to get some additional electrical done so can pull that from the tiling budget. We're still waiting on quotes from 2 other companies which we should have by Tuesday but we're really comfortable with this company, we know someone who works there and he's put a lot of work into it already so I think they're very detail oriented. He also made tones of suggestions and gave us options to save money.
I'm not looking forward to the actual Reno but can't wait to have my dream kitchen!
We are about to go through a Reno in 2-3 weeks...we will be staying home but I'll be taking the kids out most days. Hubby is a builder so it will be interesting and exciting.
