Resizing a Kitchen

There used to be a “closed in” kitchen. Only thing missing was a swinging door where I am standing. All that seventies. Even a boob light. 

My dad went into the sauna like attic and found the wall wasn’t weight bearing. I got me a hammer and saw.

Only problem was, those 2x4s were completely attached to the ceiling and not coming down.

What else to do than to cover it up and make it look like a beam was always there.

We continued a 2×4 along the entire length of the ceiling. Beat up some 1×6 and 1x4s, stained them and shellaced them. Someone didn’t measure and cut right so there was a bad gap between the set of boards. I ended up making a tie in that blended the gap rather well.
