The whole project took them a total of 1 week from start to finish. We did have to have our heating guys come and move some heating ducts and our electricians had to move some wires that were in the wall. We do usually like to do projects ourselves but this was money well spent. I think that anyone thinking about removing a load bearing wall, should spend the money and hire professionals. We also plan on putting a second floor on our house so we really needed this to be done correctly.
I am so excited to share these great before and after pictures. Now that we have the wall down, its hard to remember it being there at all. This renovation completely changed the feel of our house for the better.
And if anyone is interested in hiring any of the professionals that did this work for us here's their contact info:
Contractor: Service Painting Co.
Electrician: TJ Scala,
Heating Professionals: Service Department South
Here are some images of the work in progress including the new beam they put in the ceiling.
This renovation has made living in our home with two kids so much easier, everyone has room to breath now.
