The Ugly Beam

There was a corner in the kitchen that had an overhead beam where the roofline, and also the ceiling, changed pitch. It looked fairly large and monstrous but it didn’t actually hold much weight up. It was ugly. Not only was it an eyesore, but I knew it would be a lot of work to take off the old wrapping and put up new boards and make it look nice.

Also in this corner was a hole in the ceiling that looked like it had always been there. How the heck am I supposed to fix that?

This whole corner was ugly. I had to solve that ugly beam to bring it all together.

Let’s move a wall.

Now that the new addition is open, the laundry room wall doesn’t line up with the new wall adjoining it.

It’s all catawampus. And the paneling is gross. There’s actually three different kinds of paneling going on there: shitty, shittier and shittiest.

And the doorway is in the wrong place. It’s time to move the wall. Easy stuff.
