14 years and countless commutes later, Eva and Chris are ready for a change. While Chris is more than happy to stay put, it’s Eva that I have to convince … and I know that she most definitely has her heart set on moving to the coveted West side. In order for me to pull this off, I know exactly what I have to do, and that includes giving them an open concept main floor, renovate their kitchen, living room, and dining room, add a mudroom and enlarge the deck!! Phewwww … my list is certainly a long one but I know Todd has equally as much on his plate!! Finding a home for four in the West side that ALSO stays within budget is comparable to finding a needle in a haystack!!!
As we got started on the renos it wasn’t long before Kenny and his team discovered that the skylights in the dining room were not properly sealed and had been leaking … and we all know that where there is water, there will be mold … and that’s exactly what was found! We then ran into the same issue while removing another window from the home which resulted in a huge setback and we were forced to cut the mudroom and deck from the plans. I knew at this very moment that I had to make this up to Eva and Chris somehow…
Thankfully I was able to find a way to surprise them … I extended their pre existing closet located in the entrance into the office space which made for this beautiful walk in mudroom equipped with tons of storage thanks to the fine folks at Stor-X Organizing Systems and to finish it off I added a gorgeous gliding barn door which instantly improved the functionality of this space!!
