Our Wall Project

When we first built our home, we built a wall between the kitchen and the living room, 
because we felt that we needed a place for a fireplace one day. 


When the built-in fireplace didn't happen, we decided to open up 
these two rooms and we removed the wall.
     
After we removed the wall, we found out that the flooring
was discontinued, and the hole in the floor sat for 4 years.
Even thou we did save the left over flooring but it wasn't enough. About
a 1/3 of the flooring would needed to be removed to keep the pattern.

  I really wanted to keep the open look and this is what we came up with.  


We put the wall back and added a large glass window with grids.
The lower wall is nickle-gap ship lap.

It allowed the two rooms to be open while adding 
character to our home and it allows nature lighting into each room.  
We love how it turned out!!

    1. Thank you, yes we kept what was left over when we put the flooring down, but a third of flooring would needed to be removed in order to get it to look right. We didn't have enough flooring to fix it. I'm kind of glad we didn't I love this window.

  5. What a great solution to a difficult problem, and I love how the lighting flows into all the rooms, but the rooms are still somewhat divided too! Looks amazing! You guys did a great job! I would be nervous handling that large piece of glass too! Your home is beautiful Teresa :)
