My Current Casa, "After" pictures of the dining room and living room

This is the "before" picture of the living room.  It was and still is a sunken living room.  Originally, it had a very thin walkway along the doorway (pictured below).  We wanted to raise the entire area, but we'd have to move up the support beam where the sliding doors are.  It was too expensive to do, so we raised only to the end of the wall on the right side.  Doing this added about six feet to the existing area and thus created a decent-sized foyer.

This is the "before" dining area.  We knocked down the wall with the opening to the left of the dining area, and built a new wall with no openings three feet in towards the kitchen.  By moving that wall we added additional necessary space to the dining room.

View from the dining area towards the foyer.  We also created the archway that separates the dining room from the foyer.

Dining Room

This is the wall we moved three feet.   Beyond the buffet, you'll notice the doorway to the new breakfast area, which provides access to the kitchen, playroom, office, garage and storage closet.  Since we added three feet to the dining room it allows us space to walk comfortably to the new part of the house.

You'll notice the step down just to the right of the chair, to the sunken  living room.

Another partial view of the living room.  I didn't want to post the full living room, because it gives a peek of the backyard.  I want to keep the yard under wraps until I do the backyard post.
