Updating 50s ranch bathroom
We'll definitely check this out; hopefully there's a crawl space somewhere to get a good look.
I understand from our agent's initial check that "headers are in place" that could be used to expand into new and better windows; e.g., longer, not necessarily wider.
You can enter the bath from either the hallway or the BR. - We would like to make an open floor plan between the kitchen and living room, like removing the walls on either side of the fireplace, exposing the huge chimney, and leave only one entry to this room from the front hallway, which would be through the kitchen side. Oh--- the house is in a VERY nice neighborhood, all other houses being way more expensive but this house has the best lot.With all the "mid-century" fans I hoped that someone could tell me what they've done with a similar floorplan.I've also been looking all over the web at original ranch designs to see if there was anything similar but perhaps designed slightly differently (better for my purposes).We'd also like to move the garage entry door to one end or the other, rather than have it in the middle of the room. As for the windows on the exterior wall you want to make into one big one..... I should mention that this is a house we are seriously considering buying, but do not yet own.that is sort of a big project as you need to hold up the roof & ceiling while framing a new window opening with header. I appreciate the feedback of things to think about.
