for Conchy 2

From forum discussion here:


The rest of my 1st floor remodeling ideas for Conchy's apartment. I knocked out the wall between the kitchen and 1st bedroom and combined the space to form a casual dining area with a bar separating it from the kitchen. The washer and dryer were moved to a closet in the 2nd bedroom where I also made an opening to enlarge the whole kitchen area. In that last bedroom I also put a sofa sleeper so the room could be used for guest sleeping (maybe with some curtains or blinds to draw over the opening) or to use as to hang-out or work. This would add more room for guests in addition to the downstairs bedroom I didn't change. I love that now the kitchen is open to the formal living area and to this area for natural breezes through the house. This and my other design are all I would do to the first floor, it still leaves 2 complete bathrooms, but you can never have enough of those and they are expensive to build or remodel!

    Don't know how I missed this. I love it, especially this GERMAN wardrobe (Yeah, had to look in the remix exactly what it was named), but also the beautiful wood table and the Bentwood type chairs.

    In answer to your question about visiting New Orleans. Unfortunately, it is not on my itinerary anymore.  I couldn't bear to go back, too many bittersweet memories. It was the only place in the States where I truly loved to be and I wouldn't want to miss the twelve years I spent there. Love the city, the history, the culture, the French Quarter, the food, the leisurely lifestyle, and of course, JAZZ  ( even used to go to Jazz funerals).
