"Let there be walls!"

We've got lots of changes going on in the Assunto household with Baby A on the way!

Ryan's office happens to be our formal dining room, and it is a pretty open space. And, as much as I thought it would be super fun to have to take the baby and run into the nursery every time she cried while Ryan was on a work call, we thought putting walls up might be a helpful home improvement project. Walls were a builder option when our house was built back in the 90's anyway, so it wasn't anything too crazy.

Here is the "open office" before.

Ryan's uncle is an absolute expert in home improvement projects, and we are so, so, so thankful that he came to help us. He is excellent at double checking to make sure every detail is perfect and what we want. Thanks, Morris House!

Here's the start of the construction...

And, poof, after about a day and a half, we had walls!

And then doors and new crown molding!

I'll post some more pictures after we get it all repainted and finished. I'm sure you're on the edge of your seat waiting for those. :)

That's awesome!! That will make a big difference and it doesn't close up your room at all because it was so huge to start with. Love it.
