2009 Idea Home: Before the Remodel
Exterior with original siding
When the white siding was removed it revealed the original cladding, probably dating back to the home's construction in 1902.
Rear exterior with original siding
At the back of the house, this photo shows the white siding removed and the exterior stair that was used when the building was a two-flat home.
As more siding was removed, the home's original architecture comes into view.
Main level during demolition
To get the transformation rolling, we gutted the house right down to the studs. This image shows the main floor, looking toward the back of the house.
Upper level during demolition
Looking toward back of house, this demolition photo shows the area that was the bathroom.
Years ago, when the home was remodeled into two separate living spaces, this stairway was enclosed and hidden.
Upper level sunroom
This sunroom will become part of the new master bedroom.
Sunroom with drywall
With new windows, a door and drywall, the master bedroom sunroom starts to reveal its future airy attitude.
New windows in the front
The small bay at the front of the house gets a charm boost from new windows.
It was an exciting day when the new kitchen cabinetry arrived. In this photo you can see that the main level is completely reworked and reclad in fresh drywall. The new stone fireplace is visible in the background.
A wrap of fresh insulation is one of the updates that make this home ready for its next 100 years.
The home's new personality starts to emerge with new siding, windows, front door and foundation stone.
