The Shack - Home Renovations

It has been almost three years and I still haven't had the chance to post pictures of the renovations.

Here is the view of the front porch. The shrubs has just been manicured but still need some work. As you can see, the patio is wet, a typical day in BC's fall. I was thinking of adding an old wooden bench for some seating but haven't got around to doing so.

Here is the view coming in from the front door.

*Dark honey maple engineered-hardwood flooring, 12mm
*Sea grey-green walls
*Stainless industrial-look 3-way light track
*Identical abstract painting
*Italian cream leather couch
*Dual ottoman /storage unit with flipping leather lids
*Extendable wood stained dining table and chairs, seats four

An alternate view peering down into the living room.

* Wall-mounted 40" LCD TV
* Recessed lighting backlight

View from the kitchen. The blinds still need to be replaced, thinking of white engineered wooden blinds but that's going to need some saving up.

*Wooden branches in large glass vase
*Industrial "hospital" wall clock
*Straw area rug (now gone)
*White wooden picture frame ledge

The small but functional kitchen.

*Stainless steel oven
*Stainless steel dish washer
* Stainless steel high-powered exhaust

The Master Bedroom.

The Bathroom.

* Dark wood medicine cabinet
* Designer vanity with table top ceramic sink and stainless steel faucet
* Glass shower door with stainless steel trim
* Hand held stainless steel shower head
* Energy saving space saving toilet bowl
