Here is the before and after looking down the hallway from the front entrance:
|Before - hallway with view to pantry and back door|
|After - no pantry and view to hole where French doors will go|
Now before and after looking toward the front door:
|Old front entrance with vestibule|
|view from former pantry spot- No more vestibule!|
Another BIG change with the reno which is not visible in these pics is the elimination of the stucco ceilings. The ceiling is getting either new drywall or a lovely smooth skim coat.
The real opening up of the house will be better illustrated when I will post some pics of the new spaces (family room, kitchen and master suite) next time!
