Renovation Updates! • Kath Eats

Listed below are some updates on our residence renovation that’s beginning round March 1!

I’m very a lot trying ahead to writing about our residence renovation this 12 months!

First off, my life has been considerably boring the previous few years with the pandemic and never having something tremendous thrilling occurring. It’s most likely why journey posts are my favourite to jot down – they’re really easy and I all the time have a number of images to share. 

I’ll have LOTS of images to share as we carry down a wall and re-do the within of two/3 of our home!

I LOVE following alongside in different individuals’s residence constructing / reno tales, so I hope this will probably be enjoyable for you guys too.

We determined to take away an higher cupboard so we might add open cabinets! I made this little design in Canva to get an thought of what they’d seem like. Right here begins my profession as an inside designer (KIDDING!)

Observe our home windows will probably be black, {hardware} black, counters, tile, and partitions white!

Listed below are just a few renovation updates!

Finances + Timing Adjustments

You know the way renovations all the time find yourself being dearer and taking longer than deliberate? That has already occurred to us, and we haven’t even began! 

I suppose it is a good factor as a result of it’s higher to be ready earlier than you swing a sledgehammer into your partitions, however I’m already feeling a bit confused. Thomas and I are having a number of “if we’re doing this now we’d as effectively do XY and Z too” ideas.

I had hoped we’d use solely what we pulled out of the house fairness for our finances, but it surely appears to be like like we’ll want so as to add extra financial savings to that too. However it is going to be value it, proper?!

Thomas additionally advised me he doesn’t assume we’ll be accomplished within the “5-6 months” he had initially mentioned. It’s feeling extra like 6-7 to him. So we’re already pondering we’d want to increase our rental a month or provide you with a plan B for the final bit.

We had initially deliberate to spend the month of August homeless and journey down for an extended go to with my mother and father (whereas additionally saving cash on summer time camps!) after which perhaps hanging at Thomas’s mother and father home for a brief bit. However I don’t need this to show into 2 months of dwelling out of suitcases, so we’re at the moment drawback fixing that. 

It’s fascinating being married to the builder as a result of he’s been further exact on the finances and timing (for purchasers he may pad {that a} bit so expectations aren’t disenchanted) however he could be extra sincere with me. However I’m not essentially the most versatile particular person, so perhaps I ought to simply fake to be his consumer : )

Our Rental

We rented the home sight unseen except for some images and eventually bought to go in for a go to!

Our Room:

It’s SO CUTE and really English countryside.

The entire home is stocked like an Airbnb because it’s a short-term rental so there’s every thing from towels and linens to dishes and home equipment to ziplock baggage and spices (which we are going to exchange as we use). It’s so nice that we received’t have to maneuver any furnishings over and might actually simply carry our garments, toys, and private objects. 

Eating Room

Stepping into made me tremendous excited for the journey of dwelling there. It’s a small cottage, however there was extra storage than I used to be anticipating in order that was good to see!

Kitchen (which Mazen says is “tremendous trendy!”)

Quartz Counter tops

It’s been enjoyable assembly the subs with Thomas. He works with them on a regular basis however not for his private residence (clearly).

We selected our Quartz counter tops over Christmas. The request: white with mild grey marbling. Quartz is the one option to go for counters because it’s essentially the most sturdy (I do know this from my final kitchen renovation)! 

They’re made by Spectrum Quartz and the colour is Intrepid (Design Quantity: 0118L). 

As a reminder, we’ve granite proper now and I haven’t actually preferred the sample since I moved in :/ I’ll be so glad to get brighter counters (and a single basin sink!!!)

Major Bed room Carpet

Upstairs in our bed room we’ve essentially the most primary carpet an individual should purchase. Our home was a flip, so just about each single end is of the most affordable high quality. (I didn’t know this once I purchased the home, lol. All of it simply appeared new to me!) 

(Additionally observe that the entire again wall of our bed room can have home windows. I can’t wait!)

So we headed to the carpet retailer to select one thing for a July set up. Birch had numerous enjoyable!

There have been SO many kinds to select from, however we have been in a position to get rid of most of them quite rapidly since we knew we wished one thing impartial with a minimal sample. 

We selected these two patterns by Karastan to carry residence. 

The ultimate choice is Karastan’s Swish Transition fashion within the shade Boulevard, which is a light-weight grey. Our partitions will probably be crisp white so we’re going with the grey on the ground as a substitute of darkish grey partitions and lightweight carpet. 

It’s time to get the packing began!

Right here’s my shifting course of:

  1. Take down artwork
  2. Take down breakable decor that we don’t use
  3. Take issues out of cupboards till they’re empty
  4. Pack issues we use every day final

I’m going to jot down a put up about shifting as a result of it may be so overwhelming! Fortunately our basement degree, which is the place a number of our storage-y stuff is, is staying, so I’ll simply be going up and down the steps 1,000 instances as a substitute of getting to place each single factor in a field to maneuver. 

Please go away your packing ideas within the feedback!
