Go with the flow

Converting an apartment house into a home involves so much more than knocking down some walls.  You have to re-evaluate the whole layout of the house to ensure that there is a logical flow from one room to the next; both inside and outside of the house. 

For our home, leaving the doorway for the upstairs apartment looked awkward.  So we thought: demo the side porch? Why not?

Before:

After demo:

Maybe one day we’ll build a wrap around porch but that is wishful thinking for a future post.  For now, all we need is some new siding, tear out that sidewalk and add some more hasta to the flowerbed. More “After” pictures to come.
