You are looking at the dining room from the living room. Dining room used to have (bedroom) closets in where I am standing, used as a pantry. Those are gone and that gives us an extra foot for table space. Tile in the hall taken out and ready to be sanded.
Here is the update for now, but we are excited that all that happened in two days. So hopefully this next week will be just as productive as yesterday was. But we shall see.
