Our second bedroom renovations are coming along quite steadily. I'm a little late in my updates this week, but I wanted to wait for our big project (within the project) to finish!
|Our carpenter framed out the window and then cut into the house!|
We've added a second window on the west wall of this oddly shaped room! There was a built-in air conditioner as there has been in every room (and we've despised). We were planning to dry wall over the opening, but decided to expand the hole into a window!
|Removing the siding before installing the window!|
As we've never cut a hole in the side of a house before, we enlisted the help of a local carpenter to install the window. The room's solitary window, we soon found, was an odd size. Instead of paying extra money to custom order and install a second odd sized window, we purchased one of normal size for around $200. Our carpenter was able to frame it out in a way that you're not able to tell much of a difference in the room though it does look different on the outside. We've also realized that all three of the windows on the east side of our house are different colors. Oops. Doesn't bother us any!

There is a bit more electrical to do before the drywalling starts.
Hopefully we'll have a ceiling to show by the end of next week!
|So much natural light!|
