Before I get to showing you the kitchen demolition we did over the weekend with my parents I want to catch up on the new flooring and how we finished opening up the kitchen.Here is where we left off with the layers and layers of old kitchen flooring coming up and the rough holes busted into the walls. We had the new oak flooring laid to match the existing and had it laced in so you can’t see the seam… and finally stained all of the wood a dark ebony color. As you can see, Pikku couldn’t wait to show off the new floors. More after the jump… Our original plan was to take down the entire wall that you see on the right that is halfway down (where the one post is still standing), but it turned out that the post was structural. (woops!) So, instead of having a weird support column (I really dislike an out of place column even more then a house completely bathed in yellow), I had the guys build that wall back up. Et Violà. The doorway is still wider then it was before and more open because it is clear all the way up to the ceiling. We’ve been living with it like this for a little while now and already we can’t imagine having that wall that separated the living room and kitchen. Now I can sit and chat in the living room while Rupe unpacks the take-out. Perfect! 😉
