We finally made our way back to the Myrtle House after a month away. My oh my what a difference four weeks can make! We met with our contractor and he confirmed that demo was officially finished (woohoo!) and now we can start putting this little house back together. When I first walked into the house, I literally laughed out loud.
So, the bad news is, there was so much termite damage, the majority of the floors, joists, and framing has to be replaced. The good news is, this means it won't cost that much more to do WHATEVER I WANT with the floorplan. :) That is music to an interior design major's ears. I think I finally have a new layout in mind which converts this little 2 bed/1 bath house into a 3 bed/3.5 bath abode (hello rental potential!). I am also going to leave that beautiful double-sided fireplace open and create an open dining room/living room/kitchen. I can't wait to share the floor plan with you guys! Oh, and this is currently what the front of our house looks like. Oops. Sorry neighbors! Please don't steal those beautiful old doors!
