I've just started a major interior remodel of my 1959 A. Quincy Jones atrium model. For those who might be interested, plans and some photos of the first phase can be found at http://totheweb.com/eichler/2006_remodel/index.html
wow! thanks for sharing this. especially since I have the same floorplan as you (except mirrored). I can gaze covetously at your progress. By the way there's another home of the same plan just a couple doors down from us that is going thru as extensive of a remodel, including moving the kitchen into the corner away from the MBR. Best of luck!
... and also, would you be willing to talk about the overall financial & planning scope of the work? I am interested in doing many of the things you are incorporating into the remodel, and I would love to get an idea of what level of funds I need to come up with.
For instance, I would love to be able to call up the same group of contractors and say "I'd like a Barry Brisco please" and have them know exactly what that entails, rather than coming up with all that from scratch. I would imagine a contractor would appreciate being able to reproduce a recent project rather than redoing all of the up-front planning work -I sure would.
thanks! you can email me at larryncelia at gmail dot com as well.
Thanks for your interest in my remodel. I would be happy to talk to you directly about the project cost and scope, email me through the form at firstname.lastname@example.org. When the project is a bit farther along, you're welcome to stop by and take a look. Since we share the same floor plan, it might be of interest to you.
Today the demolition started, and I'll post photos in a few days of the house with no wall coverings, only studs. It's weird to be inside a house I've lived in for 6 years and suddenly be able to look right through it!
looks like barry's been busy.
Actually, the demo crew has been busy! See photos here:
This weekend I plan to continue working on the interior beams (almost done) and re-paint the ceiling from white to a light, warm grey.
