Swiftwater Rd. Home Renovation Project ~ Update #3

Here we are again and it’s another beautiful spring day filled with sunshine and blue skies….

Beautiful Fluffy Clouds & Blue Sky

This makes perfect weather for the crew at Spooner’s Home Improvement Services to work their magic.

If you’ve been following along with our blog you know the Swiftwater Rd. Home Renovation Project began at the end of January and has already seen some amazing changes, especially to the kitchen. Well, today I’m going to show you some of the other projects in the works starting with the living room.

Livingroom 1-31-12


The living room had 3 windows, (2-standard size windows and a picture window) thin carpet, wallpaper with border on lower walls, paint on upper walls and an old square tiled ceiling with several tiles falling down, stained and worn.

The window on the far wall has been removed to offer more wall space and the walls prepped for painting.

Here you can see the new windows have been installed including 2-windows where the picture window was, the room has been painted, carpet removed and floor prepared for hardwood to be installed, and the new ‘Coffered’ ceiling is in almost complete.

The coffered ceiling is a first for me and to my knowledge the first one Dave of
Spooner’s Home Improvement Services has ever constructed, because I hadn’t heard the term ‘coffered’ before I did a little research and have discovered coffered derives from ‘coffer’ or ‘coffering’ in architecture, which is a sunken panel made in the shape of a square, rectangle, or octagon often used in ceilings, soffits or vaults as decoration with the strength of the structure being in the framework.

What do you think of the living room so far? I love the changes and have to admit my favorite is the ceiling as it adds character to the home and brightens up the room.

This is where I am going to leave you today!

Stay tuned for our next update where you’ll see how one of the bedrooms has been transformed, the den is taking in some natural light and some of the exciting changes taking place on the exterior!
