Living Room

The day we put the bid on the house:
The room was divided by 3 sliding glass doors, the floor in one room was lower than the other and this room was not heated or cooled.

The other side of the doors: Check out the mirrors ... hahaha


First things first - remove the doors and the casing ... add steel plates and beams:
removing the old drywall
You can't really tell in this picture, but the floor is still not level and the wall with all the windows has been tore down, there are only temporary columns holding up the walls here ...

Floor is now level and the steel plates are in place, the wood columns will be covered with decorative wood columns soon ...
Michael putting the new stemple ceiling in/up ...
Ceilings done. New fans installed ... A/C and heat vents ran, waiting on the new floor -
Here it is ... the finished room - less the furniture I ordered. The red sectional stays where it is ... the beach theme chair you see off to the left will be moved to the corner and 2 more tan couches will be added. With 2 coffee tables and 4 end tables ... sorry about all the baby toys - the picture was taken the first Monday we were in the house, and it was a little hectic!
These black couches belong in the "Man Room" which is not finished yet, so we put them here temporarily ...
The Babies x 2 ... haha toy area ... this is off to the far left corner of the room ... the old owners had a dinning room table there ... we are going to use it as the toy cubby!

WOW! It is amazing what knocking down a wall/sliding doors can do to a room! I LOVE it! The floors looks beautiful, too!
