When you enter the front door you see a large closet.
Nice for storage if you need it, but we have so much space already we decided we'd rather have the closet gone and the room expanded into a more rectangular space.
Taking down the closet walls opened up this space by a length of 80" and depth of 29". It doesn't sound like much but each inch is critical when living in a small space.
|Doors gone and remainder of wall ready to go|
|The dry walling was done by Left Brain with the help of our brother in law Bill and his brother Ken.|
The cabinet I bought for the sitting room will go into the Arizona room to hold the new big TV whenever that comes our way, probably next year. We're not sure we love it in this newly opened space and Left Brain is going to bravely crawl under the house to move some satellite connections to allow for other options. It was easier to paint this wall an accent color than try to match the whites, so the left over gray paint from the kitchen was utilized.
I ordered a smaller corner TV stand for the sitting room. It was much darker than I thought it would be, but it does the job.
It's still a work in progress, but we're getting closer all the time to achieving our goals.
Long Live the Queen
