This is the front of the house before the remodeling began.
New oversize windows and skylights invite in the sunshine. Walls are painted a light-bouncing white, while white ceramic subway tiles brighten the kitchen.. For contrast, the wooden floors are stained in a custom mix of ebony and dark walnut shades; the high-gloss polyurethane top coat reflects even more light.
The bare living room before.
Owner Julie Hart sparks the mostly white interior with colourful accent pillows, Moroccan leather poufs, throws and pottery.
Casement windows open the redone master bedroom to backyard views.
With interior walls and the ceiling removed (and support beams installed), the living, cooking and dining now take place in one large open area at the front of the house. From there, traffic flows easily out of sliding glass doors to a new entertaining deck at the rear.
As funds allowed, a home office and laundry area was added as well as small garden with a bubbling fountain.
