Mr. Gorbachev: Tear Down this Wall!

25 Feb

This past week, the main floor of the house got demo’d. Definitely the most traumatic part of the renovation. We actually loved the main floor of the house, including all of the original elements, like the staircase, trim, and doors from the ’20’s. Unfortunately, the space didn’t work for us – particularly the allocation of square footage to a dining room we didn’t use, at the expense of space in the living room, which we do.

Posted below are before and after shots of the demo’d main floor. As significant as these changes were, wait ’til you see the final demo step in the next post this weekend!

The exposed  brick strip is where the wall between the living room and dining room was located. (Our future keg-bearing refrigerator still stands as a lone sentinel to the left.)

    I never would have expected you to emulate (right word?) Reagan
