The New Year has been quite good to us and full of opportunity & promise. We have had our hands full finishing up Martha Jane, purchasing Cold Springs, making big changes at Miss. Poston, oh and we went under contract on a new property, Westridge.
We have found great opportunity at Miss Poston! If you recall, in December we put a new roof on our property on Poston Circle (affectionately named Miss Poston). The New Year called for the start of interior changes. Our first project was to completely gut the interior of the home & remove unnecessary walls, ceilings, flooring, and fixtures-Bristol Carting & Container did an amazing job with this. We also replaced the old attic insulation with 2 new layers of R-19 insulation. This will help with the efficiency of the house for it’s new owners.
Our next step was to gut the kitchen to the studs. Bristol Carting & Container gutted the kitchen, which gave us access to the brick chimney that vented the original furnace in the home. We not only removed the chimney and furnace, but are replacing the furnace with an energy efficient HVAC system. Removing this chimney created an opportunity for more cabinet space in the remodeled kitchen. We had Eli Electric remove all existing electrical wiring and replace it with new grounded copper wire throughout.
The most notable change you will see is our ‘window of opportunity.’ A&C Home Improvement removed the second window from the kitchen and moved it into the living room. Moving this window allows for more natural light in the southern facing side of the living room. We still have 1 window in the kitchen and will be replacing the original wood single pane glass door with a insulated 9 light door.
Below are before/after pictures of living room.
Can you determine which window is new??
And here are pictures of the kitchen.
A lot is going on at Hewbrick Properties. We can’t wait to show you the latest at Martha Jane and also introduce Cold Springs and Westridge. Stay tuned!
