{bungalow windows & wash}

yes, yes. more of the bungalow. the windows are in!
finally have our bedroom view, i mean as much as we enjoy plywood...


downstairs den gets a facelift too.




and window seat nook. remember before?


oh and these last two photos are perhaps my favorite update. before in the studio sunroom there were two cheap-o sliding glass doors on either side. the one pictured below went straight into the carport. so aside from wanting to create a more comfortable space to get away from that one-car garage feeling room, we were looking for a way to bring the laundry from out of the cold and into the house.


solution: close in outside wall, create laundry closet & cozy space. i finally cashed in my birthday present of a front loading washer and dryer {you know your an official grown-up when...} which will be stacked in the left portion of the closet. the right side is intended to function as a normal closet in the event that we need to market this room as a real 3rd bedroom. thinking we'll likely use it for storage & a clothes drying area. also i think our stairs with landing is a major upgrade from the garage type ones above.

p.s. and all that fake wood paneling? history. more photos to come.
