Roseland Project: BEFORE

Are you ready to see the worst/best before pics ever? This place… was not so cute in its starting state. BUT, the price was right for the property alone, so if we could use any of the house it would be a bonus! My Dad really likes renovation projects, he feels like they require more creativity and innovation which is deeeefinitely the case with this project. So here’s what we started with… first up the floor plan. renovation project, before and after, home remodeling, sebastian contractor, randy hines construction, cute and company

As you can see, this is an old ranch style house… at around 2400 sq. feet this was a really nice and big house when it was built.  The owners were a doctor and a nurse, I even found some old glass medicine bottles in the back garage.  And now to the glorious photos.

The lovely front door entry.  This tiny foyer is just so constricting.

Ah, the sunken living room… why did these exist other than to break ankles?  Amelia pretty much loved the swinging barn door into the kitchen shown below.

I feel like this ice blue cabinet color could actually be relevant today, but the old, ugly cabinets and layout have to go.

I’m definitely a fan of the fireplace and plan on keeping it in some capacity… painted brick?  Wood planking surround?  We shall see!

Probably the ugliest bathroom you’ve ever seen, right?  Brown tile?!  Please don’t tell me grey tile will look this dated in 40 years.  Below are the bedrooms and master bath, all lovely spaces.

I hate that the master bathroom has NO natural light, that has to change.

The laundry room in the garage is a deal breaker.  A new design will definitely need to happen to incorporate a laundry room into an air conditioned room.

So there you have it, a brief before summary of the Roseland Project!  It’s definitely a lot to think about and a huge design challenge working around an existing structure, old plumbing, block work, etc.  Next week I’ll share the updated floor plan design so check back!
