We have had a busy week at Old Savannah, things are starting to really move along. The Sheetrock is hung, the bathroom tiles have been selected, and exterior paint should be going up this weekend.
Cunningham Contractors started this week. Their focus was to hang all of the Sheetrock in the family room and kitchen, to make it one cohesive space. The best part about the Sheetrock going up was the amount of light it brought into the back of the house! See before & after
Below is our Sheetrock Magician, Kevin Cunningham, from Cunningham Contractors.
We took a trip to the Home Depot to scope out bathroom tile ideas. We did a poll on Facebook & Instagram to help decide on the best combination. What do you think?
What’s your vote??! We will give you the weekend to think about it!! 😉
Have a great weekend & stay cool!
We have been a bit quiet this week. Lots of little tasks being checked off the list, here at Old Savannah.
We wrapped up the electrical, relocating outlets and getting the kitchen wired. P.S. the kitchen cabinets are being delivered today-SO EXCITED!!!
We have done some pressure washing outside, getting the exterior ready for it’s paint job.
We also had the HVAC folks move some duct work to align better with the new layout.
New Sheetrock has replaced the textured ceilings in the public rooms. We should have a picture ready for our next blog post.
Now we just wait for the electrical inspection so we can begin sheetrocking the family room & kitchen. Then you will really start to notice the progress!!!
Finally, the most notable change in the week (and sign that we are closing the demo chapter)…dumpster #2 was hauled off!!!
Hope you are having as productiveof a week as we are. Check back in as interior progress should move much quicker now that demo & electrical are complete!!
We are looking forward to the weekend. We met with electricians, painters, flooring installers, and HVAC pros, this week. We even had a huge Sheetrock delivery from the Home Depot!
Next week, we will be putting Humpty Dumpty back together again. Exterior painting will begin. The Sheetrock will be hung in the family room, and covering the textured ceilings.
Have we talked about these textured ceilings? They are not your typical popcorn ceilings from the 1970’s, that can be easily scraped. These are textured to the point they have to be sanded or replaced. Clearly, we chose to replace with new Sheetrock …hence a large portion of the HD delivery.
We should have some great progress pictures of Old Savannah, next week.
Stay tuned, and have an awesome weekend!
One of the changes we are making to Old Savannah is the flow. These days, people like to have a more open floor plan that is more conducive to families and entertaining. We are looking to open the wall between the kitchen and the family room.
We were able to remove the plywood paneling, in the family room, pretty easily. No surprises behind the wall.
What do you think about the panelling left in the room? Should we salvage it with some neutral paint or replace it with Sheetrock?
