So a few days I got a photo that made me fall in love with this house all over again!!!
This house was built in the 1930s. The room that was being used as the kitchen was actually an addition that was added later on. So the wall that was in between the kitchen and the living room was actually the back of the home and had a rear window as well. The dilemma was how to structurally remove this wall without jeopardizing the integrity of the rest of the house.
Well I finally got the photo that gave me the open concept kitchen, living, dining space that we were hoping for.
