Now, I thought I knew what it would look like. I have spent hours and hours working through the floor plan design, trying to envision the rooms with the walls eliminated. But despite all that, reality exceeded my expectations! I couldn't believe how fantastic it is!!! With the walls gone, the house feels twice as big. And the rooms just flow together, to create a wonderful living space.
Let's start with the view from what used to be the enclosed front porch.
The first peek without the wall to the sunroom shows just how much sunlight starts to stream into the living room. Now it will be a nice bright space!
See what a big, beautiful room it's going to be!
We took out a 15 foot wall between the living room and dining room, doesn't it make a huge difference?
And last but not least, the kitchen now feels much bigger and brighter. The refrigerator will be moved to the other side of the room and there is no longer a pinch point for traffic going back and forth to the dining room. The best surprise in here? Original red birch floors were under that vinyl tile. It's like winning the lottery to find them!
We still need to update electrical, move some radiators and install a kitchen, but it's already a huge step forward. What do you think?
