My wife decided that she wanted to have an access into the living room from the kitchen area. Everyone told her she was crazy for wanting to put an arch in because it would make a circle route for the kids to run.
She proved everyone wrong by helping dad tear out the wall. My woman with a sawzall and a hammer! After the dust settled, everyone who told her it wouldn't look right complimented the arch and liked it very much. Ah..vision!
Top pick is me, George, my dive buddy and sister-in-law Ruth's boyfriend and Patrick. These photos were taken from two different sides of the wall. The first is from the kitchen and the second is from inside the living room.
