Kitchen diner day 1

Our biggest project has started! Having returned from a much-needed break in Corfu we set about clearing the utility room:

And then the lounge, which looked immediately better as soon as the dark red carpet was ripped up (and duly freecycled!):

We then took the opportunity in the empty room to measure up for the dining table we’re having made.

Why use a tape measure when a 6'2'' Oliver will do?

The next day, it was all change as the (already false) wall came down pretty quickly:

Out came the mouldings and the fire surround:

Now, it’s no exaggeration to say that when this was all done and tidied up for the day, we just stood in the space and repeatedly exclaimed, in a soap opera stylee:  “Oh. My. God.” (and some choice expletives).

We really hadn’t been able to visualise how it could look and just how huge and cavernous it feels, let alone how lovely and light it would be.

So, that’s what 14 by 30 feet looks like. Who knew?!

We suspect the changes over the next few days will not be as dramatic, but can’t wait to find out.

We’re now incredibly excited about realising our dream space, a tiny bit apprehensive that what we’ve chosen will all come together but, above all else, very pleased with ourselves that we were able to spot this potential. (We’re just not thinking about the cost………..)
