to the left, to the left, to the left

Seriously, how am i supposed to greet guests at the door? Scurry backwards up the steps so they can actually enter the house? Yeah, that doesn't work for me. Enter fantastically handy-handy is too small a word, but what else is there?-boyfriend and cohabitant, S. Did I want the whole wall to come down? It would make it feel bigger, true, but I couldn't hastily whisper a conversation about S's mother if it was only one large room, now could I! She'd surely see! No, no, let's open it up and create space, yet keep it feeling like two rooms. Opening it completely allows for cross ventilation and for the door to be fully opened against the dining room wall. Much better. Now i don't have to feel closed in, and people can have separate conversations without having to struggle to be heard. Or be overheard, for that matter.

wow! that's cool! Opening up that space!
thanks for visiting and commenting on our goodwill field trip. I traveled 2.5 hours to go with the girls. My local goodwill is horrific!
It was a lot of fun!

If it makes you feel any better, I think we have the same layout. Tomorrow's post will show pictures. Believe me, I feel your pain.
