Hi Friends, I hope you had a beautiful Christmas. We certainly did.
My last post was about taking down a wall at the last moment. Here I wanted to share the results of that action. First I want to apologize for the dark pictures, the flash on my little camera just does not do the job. Secondly, the before pictures are not recent, but taken about 2 years ago, they still give you an idea of how much things have changed and why I feel like I am rattling around in this new bigger space. LOL.
This first before is of the wall we took down, on the livingroom side, through the door you can see the old bedroom.
This is the new space, where the old bedroom was (new bedroom is through the door there).
Here is the same space from the kitchen area. Click on the picture for a large view and hopefully better detail.
This before is from the kitchen, you can see the old livingroom, and diningroom as well as the computer wall (which was removed).
Now the new space being used as kitchen and dining. The kitchen will be changed a bit in the future, but for now it is pretty spacious.
From another angle, the dining area which used to be our livingroom.
We are happy with this increase in space in alot of ways, though we have realize it is going to be alot harder to keep things as warm and we will be using more wood. Our little 800 sq feet was easy to heat, this new space, well you get the idea.
The extra space is wonderful for having company, at least now we can have dinner guests and have friends and family spend the night without having to get them a room elsewhere. It will be even better once we complete the upstairs next summer.
Hard to believe there is a new year just a few days away. So I want to wish you all a
VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
