Let's move on from the exterior before-and-afters and take a look inside.
Here's the view toward the back of the house before, where the kitchen gave way to a weird and wasted open space punctuated by a wet bar in the far left corner:
And here it is now:
We (and by "we" I mean the wonderful guys I work with) took out the 1970s-era gold (!) slider in the kitchen and replaced it with a single French door. We tore out that wet bar in the back corner, added a window, and framed in a third bedroom, which created a nice, wide a hallway.
We took part of the kitchen (to the left of the fridge) for a bedroom closet, and left the rest for the fridge cabinet and some shelves. Drywall, new lighting, new flooring and paint and boy, it's hard to remember how it started out.
