This entry was closed off and cave-like. You could barely get a mattress and furniture up the stairs because it was so tight. There was also outdoor iron railing for the stair rails. The flooring screamed 1960's. All of this had to go! Just look at the photo below. (I'll address the kitchen in another post.)
The demo included removing the railing, removing the small bedroom that was above the entry to make a grander entry, removing the coat and electrical closet, and taking down all the walls to make an open concept.
We had to install a beam to carry the weight of that supporting wall downstairs. Those studs came out eventually. This was a huge undertaking but the results were so worth the hard work. Just look below!
What a difference! This entire home was a complete remodel and took about 5 months to complete. Putting wood on the ceiling was one of my favorite features. What do you think? I'd love for you to leave a comment below and tell me your favorite part of this remodel.
