Heather's home remodel...

I am so happy my best friend Heather and her family finally moved to my "neck of the woods" this summer.  She loves going to the beach almost everyday, so it made sense for her to live by the beach.  She is a total beach loving sun worshipper!
The homes in my neighborhood is either old and needs ton of work and cost slightly under a million dollars or cost million dollars or above and is renovated to suit someone else's taste.  It took almost a year to find the right home for them and they did. They decided to buy a house that needed work and update it to suit their needs and style.   They found the perfect home two blocks away from the beach, except it needed a great deal of work.  Their renovation journey started with the best contractor in town, U.S. ConstructionAC, owned by my husband (tooting my own horn!)  I was able to take pictures along the way.

Here are some before pictures…

As soon as you opened the front door, you were greeted by an ugly mustardy colored closet door (not sure if that is a real color!)          

My husband built the coat closet flat against the wall instead of protruding out.   Now you can see the soon to be beautiful staircase and the rest of the room when you enter.

Some people like the old arch ways leading to the next room, but this house was going modern and so goes the arches...
The arch way was removed and in the process of plastering and painting.

 Lovely wallpaper and that wonderful mustardy color again!

The kitchen was a blast from the past, drop ceiling, vinyl flooring, dark wood cabinets and a chrome banquet all gets taken out!

Kitchen is getting a well needed makeover… Radiant floor, new walls, new ceilings is installed, ready to be finished.  

My sister who is the kitchen designer did an amazing job designing a functional and beautiful kitchen.

 Lets' not forget the out-dated bathroom!
Already the bathroom is bright and have been reconfigured to have a  better use of space… 

The master bathroom also gets a complete makeover.  Sorry no before pictures of the master bathroom, but you can imagine what is was like before after seeing the rest of the house!

Well its all good, now Heather can put the materials she likes and  have the style of the house she wants.

We are close to the end of this amazing renovation. 

 I hope you come back to see the final reveal!
