Our existing living room and dining room are actually one large room. The two new rooms added to the front of the house are accessed through this room. If you recall, a tall window was removed for this purpose. By moving the casual furniture and TV to the new family room, we were able to pick up more usable space in the dining room area and make the living room area a little more formal. We in several pieces of furniture from Aunt Ida's house, including the corner cabinet above, and the sofa which had been my grandmother's. We are very pleased with the new wood floors and the ceiling where the beams were covered with dry wall.
By the way, the dry wall guy came back this week to correct some places in the back addition. More dry wall dust! Argh!
I have given you a tiny peek into the second new front room, originally planned to be GJ's office. Several plans changed during the building process including a wall that had to be moved in that room... more photos to come.
