Facing the house, there's on the right side (in order) living room, dining room, kitchen, back porch. On the left side is bedroom, bathroom, bedroom, bedroom. No hallways, small-small closets, 1,100 sq-ft.

Raising the Ceiling - How much of a problem was it to raise the ceiling? My house was partially remodeled where the original back wall of the house was opened up to the rear porch addition. The porch ceiling is 7ft and the main house ceiling is 10ft. We had to level the floor joists with blocks on the porch due to rot and termite damage. But, that is temporary because the termite damage is extensive and the whole addition needs to be replaced. So would like to raise the roof also. How much height did you gain and how many feet was needed on the exterior? Thanks

Sounds nice! We were on a tiny inner city lot. Yes, we put on a new back porch:

Nice porch! You mentioned layering paint on the floor. I have another Civil War Era home in the north, the staircase came already distressed when I tried to refinish them and found 5 layers of different colors under dark brown. I left them that way for now and my family thought I was crazy. I doubt I can get all the paint off the steps to apply Minwax. The stair casing went well but the steps are dinged up and the paint sits lower.

Try Sherwin Williams semi transparent wood stains. They are great for creating a look similar to the one in this photo.

Yes, that's paint. Painted that color over a light blue hoping that as the green wore through the blue would show. That's Behr paint. Don't recall the color...

What is the countertop, and would love to see a better picture of those splashback tiles! - I love this open shelving and counter arrangement. How did you put it together?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Robert Mace
The countertop is poured-in-place concrete with the upper layer stained with red dye. There's angle iron running down the length of the top and a base of thick plywood. The open shelves are simply plywood cut into quarter circles and painted white. Lo-fi!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Quirky Texas Remodel
"When we bought the house, the kitchen still had the sloping, linoleum-covered porch floor, the 7-foot porch ceiling, and the awful appliances, cabinets, and countertops," says Mace. "Everything was sloped, including the countertop. If we spilled something, we had to run to the other side of the room to catch it before it hit the wall or dripped off the counter!"
7. Quirky Vintage KitchenDesigner/homeowner: Robert MaceLocation: Austin, TexasThis unique kitchen is the result of a DIY remodel of a 130-year-old Louisiana shotgun-shack-style home. When Robert Mace bought the house, the kitchen was located on an open back porch with a lean-to roof that had been closed in with a few awkward additions, making a full remodel a necessity.
Samantha Schoech added this to 12 Inspiring Real-Life Vintage Kitchens
Here's the other side of the same kitchen, proving that mismatched can be very stylish indeed.See more of this quirky Texas kitchen

the sense of the eating area wall-note the face on the sink...change the countertop to planks/2 x 4, get rid of the old posts-use just rough footings-add shelves. 2 shelves under the counter. figure out how high we can go on the walls.
