Closet Expansion

Hey All! Hope you're having a lovely week. I think it's about time to share another project straight from Handy Andy himself.

I know I've briefly mentioned how our house is a continuous project (see a snapshot of before and after here). Well, for some reason beyond comprehension, our closet had a single door opening, but the space went farther than one door over in the wall. This was super annoying because half of our stuff (ok, maybe it was mostly Handy Andy's stuff) was behind the wall and not easy to get to.

Enter: Handy Andy.

We've been talking about opening up the wall for a while, so one free afternoon, he just went for it. He cut out the drywall, stud, and that white thing above the existing opening.

Then he patched up the side and top with drywall. He also tore out the carpet that was there and replaced it with some hardwood we had left over from the living room.

This freed up so much more usable space in our closet! Now we can even put our shoes in our own closet instead of the office closet! We still have to get some paint to finish the job, but I'm am so happy this is finally done, and it only took him a few hours to get everything done and back into place, base trim and all! Have I mentioned he's super handy? Oh, good.

Have a good one!
