When Kelly and Dave purchased their home, its layout was in its original, chopped-up form, but what the young family needed was an open plan that would allow views through the living spaces. So when they embarked on extensive renovations, their first plan of action was to get rid of that wall you see in the Before photo above...

With the wall gone and two columns in its place, one can see from living room to dining room and kitchen. The couple can be in the kitchen and see their one-year-old son playing on the living room rug. They can entertain guests in the dining room while chatting from the stove, all because that central wall that was once the heart of the home has been replaced by openness and freedom of sight and movement. Nice move, guys!
