I'm thrilled to see the old ceramic floor tiles and the accompanying pink grout gone for good. I'm not sure pink grout was ever "in style", but for whatever reason the original owners sure thought it was worth investing in. For now we will live with concrete floors in the dining/kitchen until our new kitchen is in.
I'm cool with that.
Also gone is the divider wall between our dining room and living room. It already looks bigger and brighter inside. I love it, and look forward to a few months down the road when everything pulls together and the house we've worked hard for finally reflects our vision of a home.
