Project Wardlaw


As most of you know, business has really picked up over the past couple of months (yay!!). It's been an adjustment learning how to juggle so many projects at once and not letting work completely take over my life. Not to mention in the midst of all of this, my computer and phone crashed at the same time. Needless to say, my recent days have been somewhat of a struggle, but I wouldn't change a single thing (except for the computer and phone part). I am learning so much and getting to work with some of the best people, which leads me to my post today. I would like to introduce you to Project Wardlaw. 

I began working on Project Wardlaw around the beginning of December. This was an older home that my client bought with the intensions of renovating. Our first priorities were the kitchen and guest bath. Let's start with the kitchen...

In the photo below you can see that the family room is adjacent to the kitchen. There was a long wall that divided the spaces, so I suggested taking that wall back and opening up the two spaces. 

Here are the new kitchen plans...

My original plan was to take out all the fur downs and extend the cabinets all the way to the ceiling, but we ended up having to leave some of the fur downs because they were actually supporting part of the roof. This was a bummer at first, but it actually ended up not being a big deal. We are going to paint them the same color as the cabinets so they will blend in and not be noticeable. Taking out the old vent hood and bar that separated the breakfast area from the kitchen made a HUGE difference. We still have a ways to go, but here are some progress pics...

I know it's a mess right now, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I'm already so proud! 

Okay, on to the guest bath. Here is the before picture...

The only thing you can't see in the photo above, is the toilet to the right of the sink. This was a teeny tiny half bath, and being the only bathroom available to guests, my clients really wanted to make this into a full bathroom. Luckily, this bathroom backs up to the garage and we were able to push that wall with the mirror back three feet. Here are the new plans for this bathroom...

On the plan above it shows a wall between the pedestal sink and shower, but we are actually doing glass on that side of the shower now. I'm really happy we made the decision to do glass instead of a wall, I think it will make the space feel a lot bigger.  Here is a progress picture...

Like I mentioned, these two spaces were the biggest priorities. Once the new wood floors are installed, we can get to work on furnishing the house. We already have design plans and I can hardly contain my excitement! Take a look...
