~DINING ROOM SIDE~
On Saturday my Mr. AGPMan continued working on the removal of the common wall that separated our den from our dining room. By evening's end he had it torn down to the studs! Watching the wall come tumbling down after living in our La Chaumière de Briarwood for nearly twenty years felt a bit strange. I can already feel the difference in our home... Opening up the wall gives our home a warmer more inviting look and feel. Less confined I suppose! And, for the first time we can enjoy the north sun in our family room!
~HALF WAY OFF~
(Dining Room Side As Well)
Once the sheet-rock was removed on the dining room side temporary supports were installed and the Studs taken out!
~FAMILY ROOM SIDE~
More tedious to me than it looks I guess. The biggest mess was taking the sheet-rock off on the other side!
~ALL OPENED UP~
Here's a view of both rooms after all the sheet-rock was removed!
Here's a shot of the wall supports...
This is what I'll be living with for a few days!!! It's not too big a mess, but I must admit I'll be very happy when the support studs are removed and the doorway is framed out. We aren't sure about hanging French Doors yet... Even if we do decide to include them they won't go in until after the new wood floors are down!
LITTLE BIG SNAG~
Do you see what the arrow is pointing to? It was HIDING IN THE WALL! And now it's in the way!
Can you figure out what it is?
Huh? Huh? Huh?
~WATER PIPES TO NOWHERE~
Here's a better shot! My guy has no idea WHY this capped off trio of water pipes was in the wall. He even called my brother who owns his own plumbing company in California and asked him about it! The consensus is something was mis-plumbed when the house was built. The concrete will have to be cut out around the pipes and the pipes cut off and capped below the floor.
It's always something, isn't it?
And there you have it! Another big job ALMOST DONE!
Now...something entirely different!
