Open Season!

Well, we finally did it.  We busted down a wall in our house and it signifies the start of the never ending home improvement season.  Up until this point we have only done small weekend type projects like painting rooms, installing a microwave over the stove, preparing for an on-demand water heater and having new windows and insulation installed.  Items that were important, but not time intense.  On Sunday as Matt and I were contemplating installing a simple upgrade to our hallway lighting scheme, we decided to just do it!  With one small crow bar, a hammer, a reciprocating saw and 2 hours while Lilly took her nap, we went from a kitchen wall with doorway to a large open pass through.  It is amazing how much it opened up the hallway and kitchen and the light just streams into the kitchen now.  We have always felt the kitchen was dark and dingy and this will help with that feeling and will ultimately help with a total kitchen redesign in the next few years.  Yea!  Let the improvements begin!
