What you ask, is the IRON CURTAIN?
Pictures say it all!
The "Iron curtain" is the 8" BAR shelf separating the Kitchen from the Great Room. This "THING" has resulted in broken crystal, red wine, cell phones, and goodness knows what else landing on the counter, and or, the floor! It is too narrow to be an Eating Bar.
....I have no idea
Any item placed on it.....has fallen off, or better put, IS KNOCKED OFF!
I imagined a flat surface extended by those wasted 8 inches. Resulting in a true
Open Floor Plan!
The desired design for the 21st Century!
The first thing this morning MC and I "prepped" for the Big Removal!! We moved everything out of the area, including the sofa, chairs, rugs, pictures and accessories. The space was ready for the work to commence!
DOUBLE D & D REMODELING
There was no way MC was going to tackle this job!
DAVID COLEMAN Jr.
was in charge!
HE AND HIS CREW
IMMEDIATELY ADDED DROP CLOTHS.....
AND A HUGE DRY VAC WAS CARRIED IN
this all made me a very happy "client"!
ALL READY TO GO
FIRST TO GO..
THE TILE BACK SPLASH
THEN THE REMOVAL OF THE GRANITE
This was when I could peek through and actually get an idea of what was to come!
There had been two power outlets on the tile back splash. These wonderful men suggested putting them under the extended counter! Genius!
Now...the frame of the old shelf.....going out!
Of course, MC, commented on how glad they were doing the work and not HIM!
The SHELF IS GONE!
NOW....THE "OLD" SHELF TOP WILL BE THE EXTENSION OF THE EXISTING COUNTER.........
REVEALBecause of their professional workmanship and courtesy I had very little clean-up after Day One !
one of the first times, MC, sat at his lap top and enjoyed the day, while the BLH was being transformed!
