This is before…
This is after!!!
Joel has made the dining room and the kitchen one large room!! Isn’t it awesome! When i was first thinking about the kitchen i absolutly did not want that wall out. I wanted a formal/seperate dining, then i thought about making a very large opening between the 2 rooms. Almost like an island.
From there i was convinced that the wall should come out so that the room would be bigger for family get togethers (which i want so bad- my table and area now allow for 4- i have sat 6 i think, and there is no room for them to get out or move!! But it works.)
From there i was able to make my stand longer than Joel was that we should add more room on to the kitchen/dining!! I really do love getting what i want. In the begining when we were talking about the bedroom addition i wanted there to be some additional living room space- so that would mean him taking out the wall there between the 2 rooms. He said no. But now with all of his knowledge and experience i think he can do anything!! He is so, so wonderful!! I just love him!
So we are now blowing out the whole 24′ South wall on the house!! eeeeeeee!! My kitchen/dining will be 24×24!! I am excited and i don’t even care if it puts us back a couple months, it is worth it, completely.
Joel asked Dad to come over the day he made the rooms 1, and they installed a LVL beam where the wall was. It is a whole bunch of wood glued together and is supposed to be very, very strong! Joel said it was really heavy too. When the south wall goes one of these beams will go in there too.
My husband rocks!!
