Wednesday, August 26, 2015 2015...the den

We spend 75% of our time in our back living room, and the pets spend 90% of their time here. It is currently the hottest room in our bungalow, and with our renovation we are looking forward to this room being better insulated.

The next room up on my before tour of my bungalow is the laundry bath, which has access to the back deck and pool. This room is accessed through the striped hallway from my previous post. If you want to see pictures of this room back in 2003, when we moved in, look here. Officially, we have never finished this room, as there is an unfinished shower hiding behind the ticking stripe curtain. Currently my 17 year old cat uses this space for his litter box and food bowl area. Someday we will finish out the shower. I'm going to try to finish up posting my 2015 house before pictures in the next week, because I'm eager to sift through and post my vacation pictures from a recent trip to Portugal and Spain.

Sunday, August 2, 2015 2015...the kitchen and striped hall

Over the years, I've blogged a lot about my kitchen. It once even got published in a Better Homes & Gardens publication here. Not much is changing in the kitchen during our renovation, although a few things will get tweaked.

The striped hallway in our bungalow is a pretty big artery, connecting kitchen, dining, bedroom, family room and laundry bath. To make way for the stairwell to the attic, the opening between the hallway and dining room will be closed off. The openings to the kitchen, family room, bedroom and laundry bath will stay.
