I am thinking about knocking out walls in my house.
But still, I am thinking about knocking out walls.
I have a couple of friends who live in mid-century ranch style homes, probably about the same size as our house. Except they have knocked out walls, opening up their kitchen/living/dining rooms all up into each other, which allows for better entertaining - especially when lots of kids are involved. Which in our stage of life, they almost always are - which I love!(from Wisteria)
Only our house isn't mid-century, it is a 1940's cottage/ranch/hybrid, and it's walls are plaster not sheet rock, a much easier to work with building material.
I am a little afraid that if I start knocking out walls, it will be a little bit like pulling a thread on a sweater, and the whole thing will come crumbling down. Or we will find out things we don't want to know....
Have you ever attempted to knock out old plaster walls? What did you find?
Did you used to have separate living room/dining room/kitchen and now have a wide open space?
What do you think? What did you like better? Was it worth it? Would you do it again?
