It's a gorgeous brick fireplace to the ceiling! Why was it ever covered? It's going to be cleaned this week and it works. When we first deciding if we should remove the wall unit, I never thought about removing the front glass doors (look back at the first photo).The glass and metal covered so much of this. I can't wait to see it cleaned.We knocked down a kitchen wall. Now you can see the fireplace across the house. Now, let me show you the foyer. The white door is a coat closet and it is going to become part of the laundry room which backs into it.From this view standing in front of the fireplace we have opened up that area and removed the jams closing in the foyer. We've opened up the separation from the foyer to the great room.
And notice the tile and ceiling is gone. The house is almost a shell only.
This is going to look SO different when we put it back together.
Maybe we'll be in by the end of the year?!
I can't wait to show final photos!
