RenovationsThe Buffalo Bungalow Before April 17, 2015Thanks so much for all of your encouragement about our new house! We are so excited about The Buffalo Bungalow! And I am so excited to share the before’s with you today! We have BIG, BIG plans for our little bungalow, but before any of that will make sense, you’ve got to see where we’re starting. First of all, here are the bungalow’s specs: 2 bed 1 bath 740 square feet .28 acres Yes, you read that correctly. The bungalow is currently 740 square feet! That is half the size of our current house. But, the lot is bigger than our current lot, allowing plenty of room for an addition. The lot is super deep and is surrounded by trees. Here are some more exterior before photos. Even though we’ll have to add on, we love the charm and character of what’s here. I’ve always wanted a front porch and it’s so nice that this structure is here. The back of the house isn’t quite as lovely as the front. Our street is a slight hill sloping down towards the park, so you can see that here in the back. Before we get to the inside before photos, here is the current floor plan for reference. Let’s jump right in. You come into the current living room from the front door and porch and this is your view. I love that there is a fireplace, but I hate it’s bricked up. Lots of lovely natural light in here, though. There’s a cased opening to the right inside the front door that leads into the dining and kitchen room (all-in-one). These two “rooms” are tiny, tiny. It is 740 square feet, after all. That door to the left leads to a tiny mudroom and side exterior door. If you go back into the living room, you’ll notice an opening to the right of the fireplace. As you can see from the floor plan, that leads to a little hall that connects the two beds and bath. Bedroom 1 is immediately on your left when you go through this opening. It has another fireplace that’s directly behind the one in the current living room. And two nice big windows. Back in the hallway, you first come to the bath on your left. It’s a decent size bath currently. It has a decent white shower insert and tub. The last room on the tour is Bedroom 2. It’s been so much fun, but a little difficult figuring out the new layout. I would love your suggestions as we’re firming up our plans. You guys may think of amazing ideas we haven’t! How would you add on and layout the current space? Here’s the current floor plan once more for reference. Send your suggestions my way, y’all! FYI, there’s room on both sides and the back for adding on. I’ll be sharing our plans on Monday! Ofcourse I’ll share each step here, but you can also follow our journey on Instagram here: *** And today is the last day of BSHT!! Make sure you check out all of this week’s tours! They’re amazing!
