The condensed version

Our reno’s are done in time for Christmas. No more dust and hammering and stuff piled up everywhere, it’s all done and gorgeous. Believe it or not, I actually miss the activity and watching the guys work. I learned a lot and asked a lot of questions. They were so professional and very particular about their work. Wonderful  work, can’t speak highly enough about them. If you want to see more of their work beyond what they did for us, follow this link.  Allard Renovation

Here is a short version of what they did for us. The whole project consisted of rebuilding the front entry way specifically to take out a half wall that served no purpose. Change the floors in the living and dining room to hard wood and the stairs. We added the upstairs hallway and closets after they were underway.

We replaced the two closet doors upstairs to white ones, the rest we can do later. The trim is off the bay window in the living room the window frames are now white. We have new railings next to the stairs and a fantastic focal point at the top of the stairs in the living room with the hardware on the railings to match.

There are now porcelain tiles in front of the woodstove and we painted out the entrance and closet, the living/dining rooms and upstairs hallway and closets. I also had a number of small wooden frames with store bought pictures in them, country themed and I painted those the lighter of the two colours from the entrance, and painted the wall behind them, the darker of the two colours and replaced the pictures with those of cats we’ve known and loved and still have as visitors.

From start to finish and I’ll make this quick and painless because it’s probably only interesting if you’re doing reno’s to… ;o~ Just a quick before and after of the highlights…. The very last thing to do and it’s minor, is the electrician is coming to disconnect the wiring for the three baseboards we had removed from the front entrance, living room and dining room. We had a heat pump put in last fall, so baseboards aren’t needed and I hated them so much. They never got used anyway because we always used the wood stove until last fall….
