We recently knocked a wall out in our house.Partly, because we could.
Mostly, because we love have family and friends over and we wanted a room big enough for everyone to be in one place.
Some of the project was a bit shocking. Like finding out the built in cabinet I loved wasn't built in at all. That some of the ceiling had new drywall, some of the walls were thicker than others and the floor was completely uneven between the two rooms. Oh, and that one piece of knob and tube we found hidden in the wall...
... old Farmhouse charm.

We are still cleaning dust from every other inch of the house. How it got upstairs, I don't know.
|peek-a-boo I see through you|
|the process ain't pretty people|
|doorway to bedroom- gone, drywall going up|
|before, from den facing dining room (left of door)|
|before, from den facing dining room (right of door- at office)|
|after, from edge of office door facing kitchen|
|before, from kitchen looking through dining room into den (open doorway to bedroom|
and can barely see basement doorway far right)
|after, couch is where wall and doorway to bedroom was- basement door where it always was|
|after, another picture from kitchen doorway|
|after, from basement door facing bathroom door and kitchen on left|
It was a good decision and we are glad we did it.. just in time for Christmas sleepovers!
And thank you Adam Ayers who did a most excellent job - working nights and weekends to finish this mega project in two weeks.
Happy Sunday y'all!
