I made another visit to Ashley Gilbreath‘s house to see how it was coming along on Thursday. (Believe it or not, they did end up moving in the day after I took these photos!) Still lots of work to do on the exterior, but things are really starting to come together out front:
A little more stucco work, some new awnings, and a little landscaping and that place is going to have some major curb appeal!
Here’s a look at what was going on out back that day:
It won’t be long before there’s an awesome courtyard out there!
A couple of readers commented that they were confused about how the roof worked on a previous post, so I snapped a shot of the side of the house so it would be a little easier to see what’s going on up there:
Basically, the architectural review board wanted the front and back of the house to look as close to the original house as possible:
…so to hide the new pitched roof (that was added to accommodate the new central air and heating duct work) there’s one parapet wall on the front of the house, and another one near the back of the house. The pitched roof sits in between the two. Here’s a drawing of how it looks from above:
Here’s a look at the playroom/office to the right of the front door:
The walls throughout the house are painted White Dove (flat) and the trim is painted Revere Pewter (semi gloss). The floor is stained Jacobean by Minwax.
From what I understand, that chandelier and the iron track and those old shutter doors are already hanging up in this room and I cannot wait to snap some more pics of how they look next time we go over there!
To the left, the living room was really coming together last week, too:
That’s the kitchen island sitting in the middle of the floor there.
I’m pretty pumped to see how that looks in the kitchen now, too! And speaking of the kitchen…
(That’s me and my Aunt Chriss standing there in awe- LOL!)
Wow, right?! So pretty! Here’s a look at the breakfast room:
What a great idea to use some more of those old boards that way, huh?
Through the breakfast room is the almost-finished little hallway:
…and here’s a look at how the bedrooms and bathrooms looked as of last week. Master bedroom and bath:
This is one of the two kid’s bedrooms…
…and this is the bathroom the kiddos will share:
The cabinet below was original to the house:
They moved it from where it was originally positioned, and it still needs a little cleaning up, but WOW- is that thing neat!
Ashley’s turning the table below into a sink base, and it will sit to the right of that cabinet in the photo above:
That’s the marble backsplash laying on top of it, and here’s a shot of the marble countertop that will sit on top of it:
Ashley finds most of her old furniture and doors at Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta, and I just love that pieces she’s picked for this house!
If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to leave Ashley a comment here, or you can always find her over at her Parish blog. As soon as she’s got everything cleaned up and decorated, we’ll head over and photograph the place one last time. They renovated the house in less than 45 days, so I’m sure she’ll have it ready for it’s final close up in a couple of weeks- LOL!
