I love seeing people’s renovations and projects. If you’re doing/have done anything interesting and have before and after photos please send a brief description in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com
Thanks to HG for sending these shots. He writes:
“I managed the project including hiring an engineer, getting drawing, getting permit, hiring three different contractors, negotiation the best deals from each (window installing company, Marvin, for material and labor; brick demo and structural support installation company; then finally drywall and other finishing company). The project spans enlarging window openings on three floors, not just the top floors (the pic) so I haven’t really calculated the final cost yet, but definitely more than half-off of prices I was given by general contractors when I was shopping around.
Before – As you can see there were two small windows and a door that takes you to a deck.”
“During – They used drill to loosen the brick, but picked one brick at a time… a very length process.”
“After – we love the outcome. The sliding window/doors are great.”
