Originally this was a full wall and contributed to making the kitchen feel smaller than it is. Now it's more open to the dining room.
Now I'm just messing with you all with that title! Monday we were stoned and today we’ve been framed. The good news is that in the world of remodeling it’s good news. It means the house is being put back together in its new configuration.
This view gives you an idea of how, with the half wall and the smaller fireplace the whole space will feel more open.
This is an accent wall we're adding to give the entry a bit more definition. Beyond it you can see the new doorframe that will become a pocket door for Mr. G's office.
It's a little hard to tell but this is the frame for the new guest bathroom. The tub is already in, on the left.
