Ahh, future projects. Renovation is such a sickness but I cannot wait to see what we can do together.
Phase II is all about the outside. We sit on 1 1/2 acres of neglected grounds. We have many trees and shrubbery that needs to be cleared out and more trees that need to grow in other areas of our yard. We’re also planning a paver stone patio with a pergala, possibly attached to the house for some much needed shade. The building of this may take much longer since Phase III is most important so I hope we just clean out, plant plenty of trees and paint it in a gray color scheme. I would have considered blue but our neighbors Cape is blue.
For our Phase III renovation, we are planning a full master suite on our second floor, including a bathroom where one doesn’t exit and a walk-in close with a small office area. This also includes a full gut and renovation of our downstairs bathroom (maybe) since we’ll need to run the plumbing through it.
We currently use our second floor space as storage and it was previously 2 bedrooms. Everyone loves this space as it’s a real time capsule from the 60s with the real wood paneling.
Our living room needs better lighting so we hope to put in some pot lights (Cree LED seems to be the nicest of the bunch) we also need to buy some bedroom furniture. We also want to upgrade the garage a bit to be sure Paul can work on his race car passion and keep our cars maintained. More electrical to do for a compressor and all those bells n whistles. I wonder how many years this will all really take.
