The story of the removal of the addition would not be complete if I didn't share this next part.
Remember this huge pile that once was part of our home?
We spent the next couple weeks removing debris.
Filling dumpster...after dumpster....after dumpster.
Until one day when I came home & surprise!
We had new "siding"
I think grey is a nice choice;)
And the debris pile was nearly gone.
And oh yeah!
Remember how we had left part of the home on the right side.
That is what will be part of our kitchen.
Well, Surprise! It's gone!
Travis just decided one day that he didn't like it.
I think maybe somebody just got a little destruction happy:)
Actually, once the main addition was removed he realized that part of the home
would end up being the only part remaining, that did not have 10 foot ceilings.
Since we plan for that space to be our kitchen he really didn't think
it was a good idea to leave it & decided to remove it.
Our cabinets would have been on a shorter wall.
It would have been very awkward in the open layout space.
I would have hated it! He knows me well.
Good thinking honey!
What a great surprise!
Some things do actually turn out to be good surprises!
Now the entire existing home & the addition will all be aligned with 10 foot ceilings.
I can't wait!
I love high ceilings in any space.
I think it makes a small space seem so much bigger.
Our cottage home is going to be around 1500 square feet in the end.
Not huge, by any means, but the ceiling heights should help the space feel larger.
