This garden level kitchen apartment project evolved from a busted a$$, cracked head infested kitchen; to decent kitchen with solid wood cabinets; then finally to a luxurious master bedroom suite with a fireplace. It only took 6 years.
The chimney for the fireplace was hidden behind the sheetrock in the kitchen. I removed the wall because I was tired of hearing mice scuttling and squealing behind the walls.
I finally got tired of tracking dirt from the backyard into the house. While some may think that a concreted backyard is hassle free, mine isn't.
I finally scraped enough money together to purchase artificial turf. Even though doesn't look exactly like real grass it's pretty darn close.
