The kitchen was approximately 13' by 10' before we tore down the dividing wall to join the "den." It was a useless kitchen and we figured it we were going to go so far as to rewire, rip out cabinets, add new windows and new flooring we might as well just open it up.
The header was headed up by my dear old pop. He painstakingly researched, purchased and installed this bad boy. What a blessing to have a construction savvy dad who loves me!
If you look closely you can see the 4 new in ceiling speakers, 8 new cans, 4 pendant lights and tons of electrical. My electrician is amazing btw. Actually the speakers are not in as we cannot afford them yet, but the room is run with new Monster Cable as well as zoned for a music control panel. This room houses the "control" room which we framed up in the unused space under the staircase. All the ethernet and music zones in the whole house meet here and can connect in the future for whatever my little heart desires. Even if you are budget friendly, add this to your wish list. Its stinking amazing.
Can you spot the one we call Tiny Tim? ha.
He is the one holding sheetrock to the ceiling with one hand.
1. Before picture...which isn't looking too bad at this point.
2. Braced much? We are prepared for the earthquake of the century.
3. All sheeted! Praise the Lord.
And here is what we look like afterwards...
Mr. and Mrs. beaming with pride
