Living Room Renovation 1

Today I started my living room renovation.

When I moved up from a low resolution 52” standard definition TV to a HDTV the Home Theater websites I consulted recommended a distance of 8.5-11 ft away from HDTV. I then came up with the idea of shortening the LR to move the TV closer to the viewer.

So I temporarily shortened the living room to see how I would like it. Then I put up a bunch of sheets from Walmart to make a curtain and located all the equipment is behind the sheets and found I REALLY liked the viewing distance and didn’t miss the size of the room at all.

With a lot of extra space behind the curtain, I made the decision to enlarge my bedroom close. Seemed like a no brainer.

My GOAL with this project is to have a built in entertainment center, and a MASSIVE closet I could just about live in. I’ll never come out of the closet and announce my….. completion.

It will be 7 x 32 feet with lots of built in drawers, cubby holes, make-up disk for a woman, and a dressing area. When I sell the house it will make a huge impact on the wives who looks at it.

A lot of work, but I am tired of my cramped closet.


This is the other side of the wall.


The LR before the start of the work. One of my favorite rooms. Clean and not busy.

After the wall removal, this is how much more space I have to work with.l.


Curtain is down, Framing of the new wall is started. Finally, I am on my way.
