Here is what the living room/dining area/kitchen looked like at the beginning of the project. The furnishings have all been pushed to the middle of the room.
This area fairly large – I don’t know the square footage of it exactly but we have a joke that we could fit our entire old home in just this one area of our new house! The kitchen itself is extremely inefficient. We will deal with the kitchen/dining room next year when we renovate that area. For now, new paint will suffice.
