Who: Sarah L.
Where: Portland, ME
When we moved into our 1940s Cape we loved the layout, but every room needed to be gutted. The bathroom (the only full bath in the house) was the last room we tackled. Like every other project we completed, there were many surprises along the way—from the 5 layers of flooring that I was determined to remove with brute force to the window that had been leaking water down through the studs.
