When I see the infamous and very ugly “pass thru window” I have to wonder who ever thought this was a good idea! The minute I saw this I knew the wall had to come down. It wasn’t in the initial renovation budget but I was willing to go without a new light to get this wall to come down! Once it came down the awkward and small family room didn’t seem so small and awkward. The wall was a load bearing wall but we put a steel beam in place and we had a much better kitchen and family room space. One that incorporates how people live today. This home is 15 years old and looks very updated and livable.
