Framing In

After we finished most of the demo, it was time to call in some professionals! Based on the walls we wanted to remove, we needed to put in a pretty big beam to support the ceiling. After installing the beam, the framers did as much framing as they had time for (basically they squeezed us in a a rainy day.) Lucky for me my family is full of builders! My grandpa finished up the remaining frame work like a pro.

Straight view of the pantry, master bathroom (notice the chandelier??), & master closet
framed in doors leading into master bath & master closet {both previously the dining room}
They had time to frame in the laundry room, but not to remove the “guts” – but grandpa came to the rescue!

Making progress! So excited to see it start coming back together now!
