When we did the walk through of our house, my first thought when we saw the basement suite was “it smells dry!”. That’s a huge bonus (/must if you’re smart) for a basement suite in these rainy parts. My second thought was “We’ll slap some paint on the wood panelling, give the carpets a good clean and it’ll be just like new”.
Day one into painting and we knew it it would all have to go.
These photos were taken during our walkthrough of the house so they aren’t the best quality. But why don’t we take a little walk through our old basement suite, from the kitchen, the living room, the two bedrooms, and the bathroom. It’s okay, I won’t be offended if you can’t look at all the photos of this ugly ugly space.
Looking back at these photos I can’t even believe it used to exist in our house. With four months of HARD work, we managed to transform this nasty 1970’s dungeon into a gorgeous, bright space. I can’t wait to show you the transformation! I know you’ll be totally shocked.
I’ll be sharing all the details on Wayfair this Wednesday, so come back to see how demolition, new walls, new flooring, blood, sweat and tears transformed this basement.
I’m a little jealous of our tenants who get to live there.
