For those of you who don't know, Don and I have been working with a builder on a pretty major remodel of our main living spaces. We have an older ranch home and it had a traditional layout of a large front living room, dining room, small kitchen and small den. All of these spaces were divided by walls so the home always felt very small and claustrophic. Except for a huge front living room that we never used! We decided to bite the bullet and tear down the walls, get a beam put in above the ceiling for support and basically to create one big open room with a larger kitchen. We're still decorating and settling in, but we are very happy with the results.
