But yesterday, after sleeping in, I decided to play around with the new project. I'd hinged the two back walls together last week but that was as far as I got. So I put everything back together with tape and looked at it.
I'm still debating about that backdoor. Not sure if I want to patch it or not. Have to think about it a bit. No rush.
I dug through a bunch of my furniture and put pieces in to get a general idea of a layout. My biggest thing is wiring and where I want to put the lights and how to do the wiring for them.
But for the bathroom, to block it off (somewhat) from the open space, I thought about a wall, but then decided to try this.
Maybe push it back a bit from the edge of the floor, since there's some space at the end of the tub.
None of the furniture is finalized, its mostly to get an idea of how things will fit in the space. The kitchen set in particular is too much for the space. The kitchen should be a bit smaller I think.
I've got a few modern lights, some ceiling fans, and a few other things to make my own lights, which could be a lot of fun. I love the look of these type lights.
So I thought I could use them to light the bathroom or part of the kitchen. Despite the furniture I used for spacing I want a modern sort of industrial look.
I'm thinking of brick for the outside and maybe some whitewashed exposed brick for some of the interior. With I beams on the ceiling maybe? Like this.
|No idea whose picture this is. I absolutely love it though.|
I don't want a huge glass roof like this one but maybe opening up the skylights a bit more than the narrow ones that are standard. Since I have to make windows for them anyway might as well.
I'm excited about this. Just need to decide how to start. If I glue the walls together that'll make it hard to put trim, paper or anything on them. So, like Nola House, this is going to be a flat project for a while. But that's okay.
Hope everyone's New Year is starting off on the right foot!
Talk to you soon.
