This remodel started out as 2 separate rooms for a kitchen and a dining room. Although equal in size, the rooms were a bit too small for a practical design. In this case, the solution was to remove the load bearing wall which divided the 2 rooms by installing a recessed header.
The end result after this renovation is a new super spacious modern eat-in kitchen.

  1. I have a question. I'm not a drywall expert at all but I am curious why you didnt hang all the drywall sheets long edge vertical (standing up) so you wouldnt have any butt joints? Looked like 8ft ceilings in the video.

  2. Everything was awesome…until that paint color. But seriously, that was pretty cool to watch. Also, don't the joists need to be secured with the joist hangers before the temporary support walls are taken down?
