interior barn type doors but the hardware cost was extreme. The original doors, albeit louvered and always off their tracks, were pocket. I love how these turned out. They allow natural filtered light to enter the hall but still provide ample privacy.
This is the larger part of the hall. The bedroom door was replaced as well. Directly across from the pocket doors are closet doors (louvered). Note: carpet will eventually go.
A last minute addition in our renovation was that we dry walled the bar that separates the family room from the kitchen. This area had original cedar shingles which can be seen throughout the house. Our goal is to try to stay as true to the original house as possible. However, there are some areas that can be updated without detracting from the overall original appeal. In fact, I believe that updating a few areas will do the home some good. This was one of those areas.
You can see in the picture (taken when we were first looking at the house w/ C, my bff, and Realtor) the shingled bar in the background. Several shingles had fallen off and frankly they made the room feel dated and dark. After much debate, and I'm sure to the chagrin of the previous owners, we removed them.

So Project #1 is finished. Project #2, mentioned here, has also been completed. I'll try to take some photos of that one to show you. Project #3 is likely to be some major window replacement. 5,945 more projects to go. Sigh.....
