Before and After- Living Room

The living room is definitely the hub of this home.  It started as a blank canvas of carpet, paneling and drop ceiling.


This was our first time trying to drywall ceilings and our first time using a pneumatic nailer for hardwood flooring, so it was quite a learning experience!

We love how it turned out!

The modular stairs were added for access to the loft.  The dining table and stools for 6 live under the stairs and get pulled out into the living room for meals.  The couch opens and stores all of our extra bedding.

The storage units are key for hiding all of the kids’ toys (and a few of Dan’s as well)

There’s even room for the dogs!
