210 viewsHere you can see the crown moulding going up and also a peek into the dining room. This is also how we originally planned the opening to end up, however, after viewing some houses being built that had arched opening we decided to step it up and have Bret build us an archway. Boy are we ever glad we did that! It was worth the extra cost.

218 viewsAfter: Dining room painted and new vinyl flooring layed. New window treatment and light. Some time during the construction the original stove finally cooked its last meal so a new one replaced it so we got a glass-top with glass touch controls, convection oven, warming drawer...very nice unit!
