I know, I've shown you the kitchen a couple of times, but this time it's with the before-est of the 'before' photos I could find, so that makes it not redundant, right?
This, with the '70s-era dropped ceiling and fluorescent lights--
Is now this.
And that oversized gold window (and the tile and cabinets and linoleum and, well, everything else--)
We took out the wall on the left and added a small support wall in the center of the house. Filled in the doorway to that front room, then shortened the wall to match the length of the opposite wall and make the kitchen into a true rectangle. (Before it was a trapezium.) (Yes, I had to google to find that word.) (The fact that it exists makes me almost as happy as the finished remodel.)
