When we found our new house, we were looking for a needle in a haystack. We wanted to downsize from our last house, but ideally also have a separate bedroom for each of our 4 kids. We were able to make this house fit our wants because there was a media room that could reasonably convert to a bedroom.
There was one really big problem with the media room, though … it didn’t have a window. Not only do I think a windowless bedroom is too depressing, but it also isn’t safe in case of a fire. The room does have walls that are on the outside of the house, so adding a window was just a matter of cutting through brick and installing it.
Because the project was more complex than just replacing an existing window or installing a window into siding, I decided to go with an experienced general contractor. I really wanted to make sure the brick added around the new window would blend in with the other brick and make it look like the window was always there.
Not to ruin the ending of this story, but we had success!
I’m going to let the pictures tell the story …
Look at how that brick blends in after it dried – it is amazing!!!
On the inside of the room, the old and new drywall blends in seamlessly too. The window looks like it was always supposed to be here. That was the goal and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
We were extremely happy with our contractors – Hammers Remodeling. This is not a sponsored post, but they definitely earned a shout out. Thank you!
You saw more of this room a few days ago when I shared about making progress decluttering Little Man’s room. He would have been happy in a cave (he says he loves snakes and spiders), but I’m happy there is light in his room!
