Actually, I failed to take a “before” picture, so you can’t really know how small and cramped our entryway felt before these changes. Last weekend Zach and his friend Ethan took down the wall that separated the entryway from the front parlor.
In this photo, I have estimated the size of the door that went from the parlor into the entryway. With little imagination, you will be able to block from your mind all of the things now visible where the wall once was.
I cannot tell you what an amazing difference this is. Our house feels grand!
Here is the view looking down from the stairs, again with an estimated doorway to show you how much more open the place feels!
