Okay when last we left we talked about the work that had to happen in the basement.
Now lets talk about the work that has to happen on the 2nd floor.
Converting Two Studio Apartments Into A Single One Bedroom
Here is the approved plan for the conversion.
You can see that maybe its a weird lay out but it fulfills our requirements for the least amount of work required. And I believe I can do this without having to have the tenant that currently occupies the C unit move out.
Here are some shots of the interior of Unit B.
The super sweet bathroom
The water heater is in a closet in the bathroom. Its an electric model.
Here's a shot of the kitchen. That's the bathroom door on the right.
Kitchen from the doorway looking in.
The main living area of the unit.

What Has To Be Done
I need to tie both subpanels back together at the meter base and make sure the main cut off at the meter base can handle the load.
Gots to add the wired smoke and CO detectors.
Need to add more outlets to comply with current codes-AFCI protected.
Need to add switched over head lights and exterior lights for the doors.
I'm going to have to shorten the back to back closets and create a hallway.
Remove it completely and turn it into a regular room.
I have to cap all the plumbing for the kitchen in the walls.
I have to cap the gas line to the kitchen as its meter will be servicing the new unit in the basement.
I'm going to keep the two electric water heaters for now. I figure this way the tenant and a guest and both shower at the same time!
There is an electric wall mount heater that works... I might change it out for a newer one or go with the super hideous electric baseboard heat... I don't think it makes sense to add a furnace to this little unit....does it? Or maybe a mini-split system? It does get pretty darn hot up in these little back units...that might be getting a little fancy though?
How does that sound to everyone?
Course I haven't even thought about if I need to do things like freshen the bath? It appears to be in good working order it just looks a little dated.
