We began renovations again on our Brookhaven home the 2nd week of February. So far, the workmanship has been excellent and the only delays to report are due to the persistent on again, off again rain showers typical this time of the year. We started by crating a “craftsman style” porch on the front of our 1940s bungalow.
You can see on the far right of the picture that we began closing in our carport, enabling us to use it as a den, and free up space in our formal living room for entertaining. Additionally, our laundry room is connected to the carport on the outside of the home, therefore doing laundry is a tedious task, and not the most comfortable in extreme heat or cold. These small homes do not afford you the luxury of space, so taking advantage of what you have is key with any small home. We decided to sacrifice our carport for the additional 300+ square feet and indoor laundry, and I truly believe we are making the best decision.
