Kitchen Remodel Chapter Two

Here is another chapter in our Kitchen Remodel
We decided to take out a wall between the kitchen and den.  We hired a contractor to do the work, it was amazing how quickly the wall came down.

Fixing the wall took quite a bit longer and the mess what a mess. I have come to hate drywall dust, it is fine and goes everywhere. 
We didn't want the opening to be a rectangle, so we asked the contractor to make it an arch. 
But, what an improvement. It opened up the entire area.  It helps to make the kitchen seem bigger. One word of advice, never do remodeling close to a major holiday. The contractor didn't finish the wall until a week before Christmas. I was in a panic my Christmas tree goes in front of the window on the right. My tree wasn't up and I didn't have all of presents bought and nothing wrapped. But everything got done and we had a great Christmas.
