Home Renovation Project: Average Joe’s Gym

Scroll through the gallery to see all the pictures! Shot on a Sony α6000. (Yes, still a newb.)

Ever since moving to our new place in October, we have been picking out different projects to complete. This wasn’t a total fixer upper, but it was a good place to start and tweak things to be how we wanted.

I had originally wanted a guest bedroom, but after further thought, we decided it was probably better if people didn’t stay over so much. Not only that, the room would have been mostly unused. That would have been a waste for us, considering we don’t get many guests anyway.

We ultimately decided to convert one of the bedrooms into a home gym!
