Before and After

My latest project started when my parents were here.  My dad worked with our base maintenance guy, Ron Grant, on remodeling the upstairs apartment of the old hangar.  It was being destroyed by termites.  The old hangar office down below is now an efficiency apartment for guests who are traveling through.   It's never been anything too spectacular, so my mom and I jumped at the chance to get to "remodel" it a bit.  The hard part is not being able to do things exactly how you would like because of our limited resources here (ie. no Hobby Lobby or Jo-Ann's Fabrics!)  So, I think it turned out fairly well with also a limited supply of furniture.

The apartment is the bottom right door.  The entire upstairs is the apartment that my dad and Ron were working on.



Here's some before pictures.  We don't have any pictures of before when it was actually livable.



This is what termite ridden wood looks like!


And here are the afters.....
