Change is good……..right???

Here in Rattlesnake Alley things are changing……..
For many years the room over our garage was the room to play pool in…….. fooseball…….. sleepovers…….

Well, that room is growing up……..

It is being converted into a separate apartment with Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom………
We have a young contractor helping us that is being challenged daily with making this tiny space into a big apartment.

Here are some of those challenges……

This will be the living room……….We had to find a way to get the refrigerator to blend with kitchen but take space in the living room……

Bet you can’t figure out how we did that…..I will post those pictures this week…..

It ended up creating a little mini entrance …..cute ……

See the brown door at far end of room? That used to be entrance to room from rest of house….now when you open that door it will be a stackable washer and dryer and from our side of house will just be a wall so it will not be a hallway to nowhere.

“Hazard boy” came up with that idea…..we were struggling getting the W/D to fit into our small space……one of my favorite remedies…..

This will be the separate entrance…….a little foggy due to the fact that it was like 100 degrees outside and camera had been in the a/c.

Challenge here was arranging the stairs so that they wouldn’t block the entrance to pool from this side of the house………..
This is view from balcony over the pool…….it will have railings by the way……….

Taking this photo really challenged my fear of heights…..standing there felt like gravity was trying to suck me off the edge….just looking at this photo is making my tummy feel funny….and my head spinny………..
Ok…next.

Ok….my head is not spinning now………this is the view from the balcony to the side yard…..

Challenge here was creating a balcony that would not be obtrusive in the parking area next to garage……..

See, my parking skills aren’t that great…….working around those are a challenge in themselves……


The contractor said that my new challenge will be that my children will never want to move out…..

WOO HOO!!! YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!! YAHOODLY HOO!!!!!

I accept that challenge and hope that would be my biggest problem!!!!!

I will keep you updated as we move towards completing this project in the next couple of weeks.

Real challenge now will be finding the “perfect” renter……

Pray that way for us please !!!!!

Love,

Me
