Happy Friday! I know it's been quite some time since our last Laurier Heights up date, and so much has happened since so I wanted to do a full update post all while showing some of the old befores again since it's been so long.
You may recall this being what we started with.
The first things we tackled were the demolition, inside and out, by having a tree service take down our overgrown and kind of dangerous old trees. This made such a difference in brightening up the inside of the house now that sun can get in!
Next, we had all our sidewalks and driveway chipped up and removed...
And just this week our new, giant slab steps were poured. I LOVE them!
Inside, the lower level media room was the room that needed the least amount of work, just new trim and paint really.
And I am loving how it is looking! Just need the wall sconces in and then carpet and this room will be done.
The kitchen was a dungeon like dark space.
And to open it all up we decided this wall needed to go.
I couldn't get a full shot yet with everyone hard at work, but we now have an open, bright, modern space!
Our new Super White Dolomite island (which is actually grey, but whatever) went in yesterday, with the exception of the waterfall edge which will be added once wood flooring is in next week.
The wall cabinetry all got a solid white Quartz counter top and a square undermount sink.
Now tiling can start and this is our beautiful grey backsplash that will be from counter to ceiling.
Our Bertazzoni range and Blomberg fridge are going to look spectacular!
The biggest change for me is the entry and stairway. Here is the before:
And the new, bright, open landing! Just need flooring.
So there ya have it, a lot of progress in just a few photos, but I have a few other big changes to show you next time like our laundry room and master suite! It always blows my mind how so much work seems so small when it boils down to a couple photos.
And today is another big day because we got the keys to our next project: Quesnell Heights!
It is already shaping up to be my favourite yet.
Great bones, right? It just needs a little love.
