Renovations from PoPville – Dupont Kitchen and Living Room

Ed. Note: We used to feature these renovations from PoPville back in the day but it’s been a while since I’ve found folks willing to share. A good time for me to say, which I sadly realize I have to say, if you have negative comments about the reno please consider keeping it to yourself. Critiquing the renovations is not the point of these posts. It’s simply to show what some folks have done. If you like it, obviously, feel free to let them know but again – well let me be clear – don’t be a jerk. Thanks. Sorry to have to preface with that. I really do love these features and am fortunate that 2 or 3 three more folks have also agreed to share their renovations. These renovations can be extensive – like a whole house gut or simply a 1/2 bath added, floor refinished or even smaller. It can be a whole series of posts or just one. If you’d like to share one of your projects please email princeofpetworth(at)gmail thanks and thanks for understanding!

“We gutted the entire floor down to the studs and redid all aesthetic features. The footprint of the kitchen was kept the same because of space constraints and the money associated with moving any of the plumbing/electrical. We also replaced the back door and window. I know a topic that has come up on Popville has been the permitting process. I obtained the permits for the door and window replacement myself using the Homeowner’s center at DCRA which I cannot speak more highly of. The head of the center when I used it was the gentleman who started it. He walked me through the process and even let me leave paperwork for him to consider so I could leave and make a meeting. He called me the next day before opening hours to let me know my permits were ready to be picked up. I encourage anyone needing a permit to explore the Homeowner’s center.”
