Also too bad the Nest thermostat won't work for you, surprised as you must have some sort of crazy setup... from what I've seen it will work with like 95% of the existing setups out there. At my place it took all of 5 minutes to install and get up/running.
The gadget guy in me says go out and buy one of these but the question is, is it really worth it in an 800sq ft condo?
Got some new smoke and CO detectors today. I was considering the Nest ones, but this combo had all the same features for the same price.
amazing job lobo!! looks great!!!
i have a question regarding blinds. i inherited shear drapes and poofy bedroom shade covers and they are hideous. what's the latest for bedroom and living rooms? kinda looking at blinds à la blindstogo for either wood for the living room or blackout cellular shades...
also have 2 questions re: bathroom renos. we currently have one of those "cover-all" bath/shower installations and I shudder to think what's underneath. it also has sliding doors, which i hate. when they redid the kitchen, they took a slab of countertop for the bathroom, which looks fine, but the drawers underneath are a billion years old and don't open or close properly.
1) if i reno the bathroom, can i save the countertop?
2) how long does a bathroom reno typically take?
But it doesn't look pretty so take that $100 and get yourself a nicer looking one.
People will/do pay for design. Of course I can buy a parka that's $300 at MEC that looks like a laundry bag, or I can buy one that looks like a laundry bag but has a Canada Goose logo, and because I'm like everyone else and I think I need it, I will get the latter not the former.
That example aside, surely you agree that the Nest is a far superior designed product, no?
Is it worth the extra $100? Who knows.
..what I like about your reno is it seems you didn't have to do much reconfiguration therefore were able to keep things were they were and spend on finishes - correct?
-can/will you replace the front door?
-i like the choice of tile thru
-i dislike the light fixture in the dining area
-dark floors show up dirt a lot- i hope you don't have a dog
Yeah pretty much. The only part that required shifting a couple of walls around was the laundry and powder rooms. But behind the walls there was quite a bit of work done by moving/adding some plumbing and adding electrical wiring for some of the new potlights and receptacles.
One thing that's not noticeable in the pictures is the fact that we removed all of the popcorn ceiling and made it flat. We ended up doing this for the upstairs ceilings as well since they convinced us to go for it and that it they could try and give us a break on the cost. Best decision we made. Such a huge difference than what was there before.
