Here are more of the "after" pics- You can see the living space, looking into the kitchen, and the bathroom. I can't even list all the things we did... but here are a few, and how we managed to do this on a very tight budget:
* New floor: Water-proofing with platon underlayment, then plywood, then wood laminate ($.97 sq ft closeout special at Home Depot)
* New drywall ceiling w/ new lighting and MLV sound-proofing
* Kitchen pass-through window and counter: This used to just be a wall (counter: $25.00 misfit from Ikea!)
* Kitchen: New everything- lighting, cabinets, counters, appliances (Stove- $100 from Cragislist, portable dishwasher- $100 from Craigslist, stainless steel fridge: $125 from Appliance Depot- new fridge, but scratch and dent!, Cabinets, counter, and fixtures from Ikea)
*Bathroom: New floor (sticky laminate squares), new lighting, new ceiling, new toilet
We got some amazing deals and figure we re-did the whole thing for $5-6K.
