Demolition Man...and Woman...

This past weekend's project: tackle that blasted wall just as you walk into the house. We've spent hours debating it with everyone who comes to the house...it's god-awful, and totally cuts the room in half.

Aesthetically, it must go. But...is it load-bearing? Is it a structural support? Will our house fall down if we remove it?

In fact, its the first thing I said after I walked in the front door when we first toured the house: "Can this wall come down?"

Turns out with a couple of crowbars, a couple of hammers, a couple (us), and a Sawz-all, the answer was yep, it can come down...and nope, it's not structural. Hooray! So long stupid dividing wall!!
