On February 19, we did start with the renovation of our office and guest bed room, where we created a deeper reach in closet. One can easily do with less office space in return for a deeper reach in closet... What do you say?
Standing in the door opening, the closet from the guest bedroom is visible...
Built into the office, but we happily sacrificed this loss of floor space!
Husband Pieter used broomsticks and whatever, for hanging my clothes temporarily over the tub in the guest bathroom and over its bi-fold closet doors.
Out of the way and out of the DUST...
No need to use that bathroom anyway.
I did host a dinner on the 23rd of February and we had our dinner guests use the master bathroom instead.
This is the office before the wall got opened up.
Floor stripped bare before adding also a solid oak plank floor from Bruce.
Pieter had done all the preparation before the contractor took over.
Out came the wall and the carpenter is already putting the solid oak planks in place inside the deepened closet.
Looking into the closet from the office...
New light also will be placed from the ceiling and from above the inside of those bi-fold doors.
I never could find anything before and things were too tight inside.
February 20, the new walls are now closed up and the solid oak plank flooring is already laid.
New double outlet in wall.
Not done yet... sanding and caulking before the painter could finish up.
View from the office into the hallway. Smokey our feline boy is sleeping in his pet bed...
New crown molding added at the top...
Photo from inside closet. You can tell how much has been added...
Yep, that much has been added. The exact same solid oak plank floor, which we had in the other rooms was no longer available. But when the white wire Shelf & Rod shelving is installed again, no one will see the difference!
Do you also love deep enough closets with plenty of light?
This narrow reach in closet almost became a walk in closet because we gained 16" or 41 cm!
Will show you the finished rooms next!
