Renovation: Day 1 and 1/2

A few months ago, Joe and I decided that we were going to use some of our tax return to do something exciting to the house. Our choice? Take out the existing closet in Liam's room and add a walk-in closet behind the existing wall. So far, so good!

Yesterday Joe and I did the prep work for my dad to come and get started on our little guy's bedroom/closet remodel/addition. Here's what we did:
Step 1- Before doing anything, I took some pictures so that we could compare before and after. I also wanted to remember the one casualty of this process-the pterodactyl above Liam's closet.

Step 2- Clean everything out of the room, closet, and storage space behind the closet. Then we had to cover the floor and doors with thick plastic.

Step 3- This is where my dad, the contractor, comes in. He tore apart the old closet. There was quite a big mess!

Step 4- Clean up!

What's next? Tomorrow Dad's going to cut and put in the beams to fill in the ceiling.
Coming soon: Door to the new walk-in closet. Stay tuned!!


  1. How exciting. Remodeling is always fun and love that you included the pictures. Can't wait to see the next batch!

  2. Thank you! It has been very exciting.
