Best Review - Top 16 Home Office Renovations Before and After

D

uring the month of February 2011, my home office was renovated from the floor up. Living in a log cabin in the country of East Tennessee sometimes has its challenges. The room that doubled as my office and dressing room had three big challenges.

The first challenge was that the room bowed toward the center. When I sat down in my computer chair, it would roll to the center of the room. Then I would have to use my hands and feet to climb up the tiny hill to get situated in front of the computer desk. My husband and I figured that the ground had shifted underneath the flooring. It turns out that some of the flimsy logs that were holding up the floor had broken through. I could have walked into this room one day and fallen through.

The second and third challenges involved the two built-in chest of drawers. Because the back side of the chest was built-in to the log walls, mice and woolly caterpillars would find their way into the drawers eating holes in the clothes and leaving mouse droppings. I finally had to put all the clothes inside Rubbermaid bins to protect the clothes. Even though I would put multiple dryer sheets inside each bin in an attempt to keep the clothes smelling fresh, they still came out smelling musty. I then had to wash them before I could wear them.

As a result, we had the floor torn out, the built-in bed and built-in chest of drawers permanently removed, and a lovely new floor put in place. We also redid the walls and gave the entire room a lovely makeover. Check out the pictures of the whole process. See if you do not agree that the room does not even look like the same place.

•Ask DJ Lyons: Ode to a deceased squirrel unearthed from under my office floor

When I first moved in to this cabin in the fall of 2008, I noticed a horrible stench in this room that took weeks to go away. We figured an animal had died underneath the cabin. Sadly, when the floor was torn out, we found the dead carcass of a squirrel. It really bothered me that even though this squirrel found its way in to this lonely spot, why could it not get back out?

I hope you enjoyed viewing the pictures that documented the entire process from beginning to end. It definitely was a labor of love. The room that was formerly one that I dreaded to walk in is now my most favorite room in our home. I told my husband he will have to lay a trail of Dove Dark Chocolate to get me out of there. Smile!
