Do you notice something different? We (Nathan) removed the wall between the dining and kitchen to open it up more. We also removed the door to the stairs.
Here's looking from the kitchen into the dining and living room. I forgot to take a before picture of the living room, grrrrr. There was wood paneling on the white walls and around the fireplace. While I like the look of wood (dark wood), this was just too much.
Here's looking into the hallway. We are still undecided what to do with the logs. I would like them to stay, but we need to come up with an idea of making them fit flush against the wall. Before there was a mess of cheap trim and rope stapled up to cover the cracks. That just wasn't the look I was going for, so they are gone!
I have lots more pictures, but they are for another day.
