Goodbye, wall – hello world!


This morning, I felt very at one with nature. You wouldn’t believe the kind of sunlight you get when you take out a wall.

Yesterday, we knocked out the back wall of the kitchen. We had to knock it out before we put the french doors in so that we could lay down the floor joists. I had a great time yesterday, depite sweating like a pig. This is my favorite type of project, the kind that makes a big impact in a very short time frame. Here’s Teague, mid-demo:

We took the wall down, cleaned up the demo mess, put in most of the new floor joists and finished framing up the doors. It’s looking good. We put some plastic up over the giant hole to keep the bugs out, but didn’t think to do that until after a swarm had gathered to bask in the glow of the overhead lamp.

Here’s how we left things last night, at 10pm, when Teague’s frustration level hit the “time to quit” point:

Not bad for a day’s work!

That looks wonderful, nice work! I find that re-framing work quite satisfying too, especially when you replace a wall with french doors.

That is astonishing what y’all can do in one day! And in the heat, no less! An inspiration!

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
