I was looking through some photos on my computer & found some old (old, ooolllddd) pictures of our construction on the spare room down stairs. We worked on the whole down stairs in one swoop but for some reason the spare bedroom didn't ever make it to the blog. It's almost, maybe, sorta done so I thought I'd just share these pictures of our spare room bare bones & in progress! Just to give you some reference if you check out this post we're in the part of the map labeled Spare Room - also these are bad iPhone photos!
From the outside, the spare room had a weird window separating it from the garage. The garage wasn't a fully finished room, just a garage...so I'm not sure why there would be a window anyway. There are boards on the walls to act as studs to attach the drywall to & we ended up just boarding up the window inside the wall. Surprise for someone who finds that I guess.
When you entered the room, there was only one door on this side of the wall. That door lead to a bathroom/utility room. There wasn't a closet & that set up wasn't really great for a functional spare room. So we added walls and doors. The white door leads to the utility room & under the stairs. The next space over now has a door leading to the world's smallest closet. And to the left of that (and in the picture below) is a door to the bathroom. We moved the original wall on that side about a foot or so into the room to accommodate a sink in the bathroom.
A better view of the bathroom. You can see where the original tile ends - thats where we took the wall from & moved it into the room. We took the sink - which originally was at the back of where the closet is when that was all one bathroom/utility room - and put it in front of the toilette. The bathroom was drywalled and we left the original standing shower.
From left to right - bathroom, closet, utility room, entrance to the room
Finally the doors installed make this room look like a nightmare out of Monsters Inc. Four doors in this spare room! Terrifying right?? Now, of course, we have it all carpeted, drywalled, and painted (except for one door!) and it's coming together. The bathroom is nearly complete & the spare room keeps collecting random junk...how do I stop this?? I can't believe I didn't share with you an in depth look at the progress of this room. Hopefully later in the Summer I can give you a tour of the fully finished spare room!
