Dear readers,

 

I figured since I'm show you the remodeling going on at the Little White House, I should start at the beginning... The ground floor.

 

Phase 1

 

IMGP2314

 

Three different floors for three tiny rooms: living-room in white, dining-room in red and kitchen in orange.

 

Phase 2

 

IMGP3258

 

Digging the previous floor to get a proper draining sysytem...

 

Phase 3

 

IMGP3321

 

It doesn't even look like a home anymore.

 

Phase 4

 

IMGP3388

 

New concrete foundation slab.

 

Phase 5

Same floor in the three rooms...

 

Sorry, the door just arrived so it's not painted and I can't decide on the handle, so it's handle free right now!

 

A close up, just because it makes my heart do somersaults:

It's irregular so hopefully dirt won't show that much.

 

The two best compliments I had so far about it:

 

1) My dad said "it doesn't look new"... He didn't intend it as a compliment, but it was what I was going for!

 

2) My neighbour said it suited the old house so that she didn't remember how the floor looked like before.

 

So one more time, view from the stairs. Before:

And now:

There's still so much to do, but it's a start, isn't it? I'm looking for a buffet of some kind to put next to the entrance door, where the awful non-sliding sliding door cupboard was. I put a bookcase there, just to have a place to put keys and my handbag for now...

 

It feels it's cosier than before and it links the rooms together. What do you think?

Square of sunshine (a rare moment this summer!) on the floor of the dining-room... that still needs decorating... badly!

Now I think it's time to join some "floor warming parties"!

I am amazed at the transformation, and wow, that looks like a lot of work! You clearly have great vision :)

Thanks! That is such a nice comment. I do have a vision of what I want the house to be... It's just going to take a few more summers of work to get there!!!

Beautiful pictures showing a huge (and successful project). I love the last photo of the sunshine on the beautiful floor.
Thanks for linking up with Happy Homemaker...

The floor looks gorgeous. I'm popping over from The Happy Homemaker UK/Post of the Month Club. I'm gonna stick around to see how the rest of your home turns out.

Thanks for your comment. I'm back on the blog after a few days of "back to school" madness (I'm a teacher). I'm off to check your blog. Thanks for visiting.
