Cellar Remodel: Staircase Issues
When we mounted our brand-new timber floor covering upstairs, it increased the floorings a little bit. This made the leading staircase of the cellar stairs additional high, and also there was currently a staircase that was much shorter than the others.
To take care of that, I’ll be increasing each staircase an inch or more so we have a good also range in between each staircase. We have actually currently eliminated the 50- year-old rug, so we prepare to roll on the stairs remodel!

In a older residence remodel, getting to the factor of paint is so interesting! It indicates you have actually done the job inside the wall surfaces so you prepare to do even more of the enjoyable things.
We’re repainting our best shade: off the rack white paint + guide (from Behr). Seems boring, yet it’s our preferred due to the fact that it’s very easy to match and also functions fantastic in every room we have actually ever before utilized it in.
White wall surfaces leave lots of possibilities for including shade and also appearance via decoration (like our yellow Swedish clock!) or various other components like board and also batten, repainted doors, or perhaps a Do It Yourself timber barn door like we constructed below or updated below from an existing door.
Cellar Remodel: Subjected Ceiling Beams
Much like you can see upstairs, we made a decision to subject the timber light beams in the ceiling in the cellar. (We had actually thought of concealing the ceiling, yet transformed our minds.)
On the major degree, when we opened the ceiling, we located that we had 2 roof coverings– so the subjected light beams upstairs still have a layer of insulation over them, woohoo!
In the cellar, we picked to open up the ceiling to provide even more elevation to the cellar.
The joists go to 7 feet, so the included open location we get by not including a typical ceiling offers us an aesthetic even more like an 8-foot ceiling.
Our flooring joists in the ceiling behave and also thick (2 inches) and also have some enjoyable appearance and also information, so we sanded them to make them an attribute.
To include back some fire security, we likewise splashed them with a fire resistant– so we can have some added fire defense yet likewise a truly great aesthetic.
After taking down the old drywall, there were spaces in between each of the joists, to ensure that spent some time to prolong the wall surface drywall up in between each of the joists.

Or we could utilize it for the piano– have not chosen yet!
Cellar Remodel: New Doors and also Windows
Because we made some adjustments to the design, we mounted brand-new doors, as well! We picked strong birch doors to match the doors on the major degree (and also your home’s name;-RRB-.
We have actually likewise purchased some brand-new home windows, so when we obtain those they’ll be mounted (like the brand-new home window we currently placed in the shower room). After that we’ll prepare to end up drywall and also trim.
