Last Saturday we knocked out the wall. At first I wasn't sure what I thought of it. The house looks even bigger than it did before. We now have a great expanse to fill and no money to fill it with. :) Our plans for this area are to build a larger table top to go over the table we have. That will save us about $3,500. We are going to try putting the TV in that area and adding more seating to the family room. We don't watch a lot of TV and when the kids do they sit so close together that the smaller space will be all they need. Hopefully this will take care of two problems at once. Seating for eating and seating for visiting and being together as a family.
We are still a work in progress. Daily thinking of new ways to organize and where to put things that are now displaced. I don't think I have all the room I need but somehow I will make it work. Hopefully we will get the wood floor installed and some cabinet built before all the kids are grown and gone. (At this rate there will always be kids :))

|All the kids wanted their turn. Trust me using the Sawzall is a much cleaner option.|
|In process. I don't know how it happens but the kitchen was really clean that morning. It wasn't even lunch time yet.|
|The boxes on the table are part of the reorganizing. Those boxes are now in my hallway until I reorganize the garage.|
It just doesn't end.
