Getting Started

2015 looks like the year to begin our long-delayed 2nd floor remodeling project.  We already did the bathroom up there in 2008 (I think), so it will only be the four bedrooms.

The project will include:
  • Refinish the hardwood floors
  • Replace doors as needed
  • Replace windows
  • Upgrade electrical
  • Replace fixtures
  • Add ceiling fans to two rooms
  • Replace carpet where appropriate
  • Paint
  • Enhance closets
  • Convert Heather's room into something to be determined, maybe a solarium.
We will do this in two phases, starting with the two southern bedrooms and finishing with the two on the north side of the house.

This is everything on that floor, so I don't think that there is a lot of potential for project-creep, but you know how that goes.

We'll meet with a few different contractors.  The first one is scheduled to stop over next week and I'm waiting for a call back from a second one.  Unfortunately the people who did our kitchen, den, and powder room are no longer in business.  That's too bad - we liked them.

This is going to be more expensive than I think, as these things always are.  But, we plan on living in the house for another ten years at least, so if not now, when?
