Happy New Year!
Despite the 14 inches of snow we received on Friday, we have started the home office renovation and the contractor has been hanging the drywall. Here are a few photos of the room before the drywall was installed and during the installation. The photos aren't very exciting, but I'm sure you know what it's like when you're having work done to your home--every bit of progress is indeed exciting.
The drywall should be finished today, which leaves the taping of the joints and plastering next weekend. I've already chosen the paint color, which will be a deep blue-green. The room is very small (ok, tiny!), but I am hoping the dark paint color will be good choice and it should work well with the cherry furniture.
The floors are pine, but I'm a bit tired of the rustic look (and orange-ish color), so we'll have wall-to-wall carpeting installed. I haven't even begun to look at carpet samples yet so need to do this, pronto. The carpeting needs to be installed before the desk and bookcases are delivered.
The former owners used this room as the children's bedroom. When I bought the house, I had to take some space from this room to have a walk-in closet built in the master bedroom. The original closet was unbelievably tiny, as is the case with these old houses. The window is being covered with drywall and the exterior has been shingled to match the house.
Such a mish-mash of framing! The house was built in 1875, so this is not a surprise (I keep telling myself that anyway).
We're looking for a neutral carpet--something in an oatmeal color (no sea grass, however) and of nice quality, but budget friendly. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!
