Jungle Yard House – Part Three
It’s time to start the interior reveal of The Jungle Yard House. It’s a small house so it doesn’t make sense to do too many posts on the inside renovation. Today I am including the laundry and dining rooms. They are right next to each other so it makes it easy to post them together!
Lets dive right in!
Here is a beautiful shot of the laundry room before.
We tore out both the upper and the side builtins. The side builtins were taking up too much room. The upper builtin needed to be removed to make room for a stacked washer and dryer. The current laundry layout wasn’t to code. By moving the washer and dryer to the back wall, we were able to get this room up to code and make it much more functional! Here is a look as we were tearing things out.
And another shot of the demolition. Pictures like this might give some people a panic attack…but for me it’s pure joy! This is a view from the dining room looking into the laundry area.
And here she is all done! Nothing fancy but clean and very functional. I went with the same paint color throughout the entire home for ease and for flow. The house is so small that I didn’t want to break it up visually. This room was also one of the two rooms that needed a new window. It originally had a single paned, wooden window. This is much better!!
On to the dining room. The whole house featured homemade builtins everywhere. I’m sure they served a purpose at some point but they were not the best quality and they crowded the rooms. The dining room couldn’t fit a table. Now…to be honest, it is still a small room, but at least you can sit around a table and eat now!
There are not any before demolition pictures. Here you see the wall paneling, the flooring and the builtins removed.
You can see where the builtin hutch was and how much floor space it took up in this room!
And now for the final result. Once again, simple, clean and much more functional.
I took all of the layers of flooring back down to the original hardwood floors. The species and quality varied from room to room. To add some unity, I chose a dark stain. It flows much nicer than a lighter stain would!
So that’s part three of my Jungle Yard House. Stay tuned for more!
