Here are the raw materials Hick has to work with while renovating Pony House. Today I share the master bedroom, which is on the left side of the house as you look at the front. The master bedroom is accessed by a door from the living room.
As you look in from the living room, you can see SilverRedO parked out front in the yard. Hick plans to take out that window. I don't agree, but he says one window will be plenty, and to leave it would make the placement of a bed awkward. He does have a point. The Pony says he does not particularly want to look out front at the street from his bedroom.
Don't worry about The Pony's view! He can still see the side street from his bedroom. This wall on the right will be moved back at least three feet, maybe more, to make the master bedroom larger. A door will be here at the right side of the photo, to access the master bathroom. No closet in the master bedroom, since there will be a large closet in the master bathroom. That's how we have it in our house, and it's very handy for getting dressed right after the shower (or 2-hour soak in the big triangle tub).
The master bedroom will have laminate hardwood flooring, and new drywall. And of course a new(er) window. Hick talked to the guy who lives in the house behind Pony House, on the other side of the garage and alley. He does drywall for a living, and said he'd be available to do Pony House. Hick sure has a lot of connections. Somebody in every neighborhood, somebody in every trade!
Tomorrow we will take a look at the master bathroom.
I am putting the floor plan at the bottom of each Pony House post:
