It's been a while and since some of you've been asking, I thought it's time for a little update on our renovation.😊 I will spread out some progress photos during the week.
Here is an update on our floor!
The short recap version is: We patched our old red oak floor with new, then had it sanded, stained and finished. Haha I wish it had gone as simple as that sounds.
What really happened was: Three times water leak on our newly sanded and unfinished floor (don't ask).😫 Then our contractor messed up again with the stain/finish and the entire floor turned out all blotchy and bubbly.πŸ€• So finally we hired a professional flooring company that came and redid it all. But hey it did turn out great in the end!πŸ˜‚

Woop woop now all four skylights are open. But I might be more excited of what's in that big box over there.😝 Can you guys guess what it is? (Hint: we've been living without a kitchen for almost 6 months, hence the excitement)

Thanks for all the feedback on the last post! We decided to try to match the old floor and it feels like we're taking the right decision.πŸ‘ Here we placed a few more just to see how it would look! Then some sanding and finish will do the trick.

We've been going back and forth with what to do with the flooring.πŸ€” Most of the house has this beautiful old red oak hardwood floor that just needs some TLC to get the luster back. But the kitchen and parts of the living room has none at the moment. So we thought, either we put in a completely new floor all over the house (which would be pretty expensive), or we look for the same type of floor and try to match it. Here's a piece of a new unfinished 1/2 x 2 red oak floor that I found at @sshardwoodfloors . The new floor is slightly higher because the old one has previously been sanded, but we could just give the new an extra scrub.😊 So, if we sand everything and put on a new finish I believe it could blend in pretty well! What do you think?

Last 2 weeks has been very challenging in our renovation journey. Some pretty nasty unexpected expenses showed up at our doorstep throwing our budget out of the window.😱 Sadly this means it's going to take longer for us to finish. But hey, we're learning a hell of a lot for our next house.😁 Progress update: The steel plates for the beams and one skylight is now up! The last poles that where holding the beams (where the old wall used to be) are gone.πŸ‘ And of course, a lot of invisible work has been done such as plumbing and lighting.πŸ’‘This room will be epic!

Our steel plates that will hold the beams together has arrived! Unfortunately our contractor has been sick the entire week so we've been at a stand still again... Can't wait to see how this will look and if they'll actually hold the beams😬#hwvenicehomerehab

Kitchen corner crush from @cravenhomestead

Skylights will go here, and there will be four of them. We were worried they would be too big, but seeing them framed they look smaller. Though I think it's a good size! Can't wait to see the actual windows!

Wow, @amberinteriors has done it again! Simply gorgeous kitchen. I'm loving the green cabinets and everything else for that matter✨
