Staircase off, part III

I have been changing the room order in the third floor. First, I thought that I would put the bedroom in this little room and the living-room (family room) in the bigger room, but then I changed it around, like in this picture.

After a while I noticed the living-room was very crowded when the whole family was gathered in there. And here is the picture of the parent's bedroom without the staircase. So much more space! (well, at least a little...)

Michael and Rachelle (the parents) like the new order a lot.

Here are the two rooms in the third floor. I love it...

And the family loves it, too.

Staircase off! Part II

Well, this is how the dining room looked like before... As you can see, the staircase took so much space... The room did not have any wallpaper, and the rug was very old. The family did not like it at all.

So, again we took the stairs off... This is the hole what is left after removing the staircase. The wood you can see there is the kitchen cabinets... So, we need to figure out a suitable cover for the hole and do something for the floor.

Here is the new dining-room! The family is very happy about the large room, they could even have more furniture.

Tom, watch out for the hole!
