Anyway, they decided to tackle the wall so I could just stand back and take pics while they brought it down. The way their house is set up, you walk into an entry way and you can either turn left into the "great room" (i.e. kitchen/dining/living area) or turn right to go down the hallway to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Because there isn't a lot of natural light in their house, Brian had suggested removing the wall to make things feel more open. In a perfect world with thousands of dollars, we'd vault the ceiling. Alas, this is still their home and we're just renters that they very graciously allowed to take over the renovations for them. In reality, we love doing this kind of stuff so we were more than happy to take on the project.
|That white panel used to be a window that was broken. Brian is going to drywall over it so it looks flat and the light switch will be moved there since we tore down the wall where the light switch currently lives..|
