I bought my house to fix up and eventually sell in a few years. I got a good deal, 72k$ for a 3 bedroom one bath on an acre of land in town. Recently I've installed a Goodman heatpump / 15kw electric furnace with all the duct work to go along with it, and plumbed my wood furnace into it as backup. Actually I use the electric as backup. Anyways. So whats classified as a "bedroom" is actually a utility room with 2 doors, one leading to the garage and the other to the dining room, and a nook for the washer and dryer. All of this is along one wall. The other part of the room has a large storage closet. My idea is to add a wall with a door, to make the side with the 2 doors and washer/dryer into a hallway, and the other side into a small bedroom or office area. It would be about 8'x12'. Plenty of room for a nice big desk and work space, or for a childrens bedroom with a single bed, dresser, etc. While I agree this is quiet small, it seems like I would only be doing good by making it a real bedroom, since as it is its pretty much unusable except for as storage. Right now I just have some work out equipment in there that I never use. It needs recarpeted anyways....so my plan is to rip up the carpet, buy some 2x4s, build a wall frame structure in place with room for a prehung door, add drywall, and tada! Is there any steps I'm missing? I've hung and done drywall before, so thats not a big deal. I can run an electric circuit into the new wall for an outlet or two, and my new "hallway" area I'm making for the utility area (washer and dryers, plus walkway to the garage) will need a light fixture added to it. I'd need to add trim, but the trim in the rest of the house isn't done yet, so thats not a big deal. I'm just using pine 1x6"s with a walnut finish. I didn't think they looked that great when I started, but my girlfriend and mom both say they really like the look it gives the place. So, anything I'm overlooking here? This would be my biggest project to date.
