Here are the before and after pictures of how
the kitchen looks as you come in the door of our house. The stairs are
gone. There was both a downstairs and upstairs set. They went down on
Sunday. It really enlarges the kitchen and makes the cook very happy.
That is an understatement. The new stairs are under construction. They
will just be going upstairs since there is another stairway to the
basement in the shop.....soon to be the living room. The stringers were
cut tonight, and one is standing in what was the office. It will be up
against a wall and take up so much less space. I can hardly wait since
when they go up, my quilting machine will follow them into the
upstairs. That will free up the shop to be a living room and give us so
much more space on the first floor. There will be a lot of work to do
in the upstairs, but so what? I am not allergic to work. I just wish
that I could do more of the construction work.
