Master Bedroom Addition to 1950s Ranch (interior)

With lots of consideration we realized it was best for us to add on a bedroom to our 1950s ranch instead of buying a new house that was larger, here is a glimpse to how it happen. If you're looking for an exterior glimpse click here.

In order to make an entrance to the new addition, we cut space from our old master bedroom and added a hallway through that room to gain access to the new room, this worked great because we were able to keep the old master bathroom with our new master bedroom addition. At some point we plan on making the master bathroom bigger, but for now it keeps the cost down and permits are not needed since we are not adding plumbing outside of the original layout of the house. It was a lot of fun seeing this room come together, my favorite part of the room is the wall of closets!

Here's brief step-by-step of the interior:

1. From old bedroom a hole is cut through  the exterior bedroom wall to access the new master addition, note the door on the left leads into the master bath that we will use with the new master bedroom.


2. Walls going up to create hallway through old master bedroom making that bedroom a bit smaller but still usable for a guest bedroom. We added a new doorway into the new guest bedroom and closed a winodw, leaving one window in the room and a closet.
4. View of old master bedroom with framing for new wall and closed exterior window.

5. Windows and doors installed, drywall up.
6. View from new master into original part of the house.

7. The last thing to do was to choose a flooring, although our entire home has original hardwood we opted for carpet for a few reasons. It was more reasonably priced, it would help keep the room warmer and quieter and I wanted a softness under my feet and larger area for the kids to play around on the floor. We chose a Bliss brand carpet in the color "eclectic" it's  grey and beige medium cut pile carpet.
