I hadn’t had a chance yet to upload all of the true before pictures of the house before we moved in. Here are pictures of what the house looked like before it was ours. 🙂 The bedrooms were actually numbered by the previous owners, and there were numbers on all of the doors. It’s kind of silly, but we have stuck with the numbering system since it makes it easy to tell each other where to look for certain boxes (i.e. the hammer is in a box in either room 1 or room 5). The house was previously used as an elderly care center, so there was a lot of things done to the house to make it elderly and handicapped friendly.
Our plan for each room:
Room #1 – My husband’s home office/man cave. He doesn’t usually work from home, but he brings enough work home with him to need his own office space.
Room #2 – As you can see from the pictures, the house has very small closets that in most of the rooms aren’t even really closets but just cabinets. This room will be converted to a walk-in closet with the front part reserved for a walk-in pantry. 🙂 I can’t wait.
Room #3 – This is the largest of the bedrooms, and the one we actually use as our bedroom. 🙂
Room #4 – This was obviously used as an office previously, and it makes the perfect spot for my office/art studio. I had my husband rip out that built-in desk to make room for mine. I love all of the storage this room has for all my art/craft/camera supplies and small photo props!
Room #5 – This will be my photo studio! What you can’t tell from the pictures is that there is a strange piece of the room missing. The wall behind the closet actually chops off part of the room, leading to the exterior door. We have no idea why they did this, but it will be coming down soon.
