It was a modest Old Portland house that had been the place called home while raising kids, hosting holidays, and celebrating birthdays & graduations. Finally, it’s time to retire. They loved that home and all the memories built there. Now grandchildren were visiting and as much as the home was loved, the kitchen…..”not so much.”
The space was cramped, and because of the small city lot, an addition was not practical.
As they spoke, the solution became clear to Leitner Construction. It was time to remove a load-bearing wall. Lots of people hear load-bearing wall and see dollar signs. It’s true that properly removing a load-bearing wall is more expensive, but what a difference it can make.
The new pictured kitchen is taking roughly the same space as the old (plus the 6 ½” that the wall consumed), but as you can see, the transformation was no less than magical.
