This little structure, built in 1950, is about to be taken completely down to the studs, but in a month or so, it will morph into something more beautiful than the original owner of the house ever imagined.
I meant to get out earlier today and take a picture of the workshop/storage building/carport that is about to be magically transformed into my little modernist nest, to quote fellow blogger Brismod.
It was almost dark when I remembered to take the photo, and perhaps that is fitting. Bright and early tomorrow morning, the crew will be here to start demolition on the interior and start jackhammering concrete in the carport so plumbing lines can be laid and new concrete poured.
The well-worn doors will be replaced by French doors, and the carport will be my kitchen and laundry room. The sidewalk and grassy area in front will be paved with stone to create a small seating area, the teak bench will be sanded back to its original glory, and I'm planning a great modern overhang which I'll post about later.
This will be my little flat-roofed modernist home in just a few weeks, and I'm incredibly excited. I found a great sale on appliances and ordered my refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and over-the-range microwave last night. The fun will begin when they're all delivered and we have them sitting in the living room.
We are in the last stages of cleaning out all the things that were stored inside the building and in the carport. (We're down to one last box and my SIL's weights.) I posted an ad for a ton of free things on craigslist, and the first person who showed up took every single item.
I'm ready to get this started!
