I know that I probably should have started the blog with this information, but better late then never…right?
Here’s a map of the current In Law unit’s design.
The bar & kitchenette make the already small space that much smaller. The goal with this project is to make this space a comfortable ensuite guestroom. This requires us to remove the kitchenette & bar, along with the “gimp closet.” The “gimp closet” is in the bathroom and is super creepy. It’s dark and not particularly functional. Rather than having shelving or a clothing rack, like most closets, it has a bench. If, rather then shelving and a place to hang clothing, it has a bench, what are you supposed to put in there? That’s right…the gimp. Since our family does not currently have a gimp, the closet will be removed.
Here’s the design for the future In Law unit:
As you can see, the room will have more of an open floor plan. We will also be putting in a sliding glass door for easy access to the back yard.
