The Cathedral

I recently revealed that (drum roll), we've got a ceiling!  Continuing on that note, there is an area of the kitchen near the front door that we call The Cathedral.  If you need a refresher, check out the post on the layout.

When we removed the whole ceiling, we discovered a whole mess of empty space above the entryway (foyer. some people would call it a foy-yay but I cannot be friends with those people).

Foy-yay at your own risk
Cat lady that I am, I immediately thought: cool Cat perch! Because that's normal. The Yankee rolled his eyes so hard I thought he was going to hurt his head. So we had to basically decide if we wanted to close it up and have a regular ceiling or leave it open. Because I'm a cat lady rebel, I said: Leave it open.

Looking UP into the Cathedral. 
The brown wooden beams are not permanent, obvs. They're just for leverage for getting on up there. The purple is just construction material and not the final color.
Another view on up in there

Well it looks a little crazy, but we're getting there!  I really think The Cathedral area is going to turn out pretty cool.  We'll see!

  1. Foy yay is how I say it and we shall remain friends thank you. I think that was a good idea to leave it open. I so wish I could refer to something in my house as "the Cathedral area" it sounds so glamorous!! Keep up the good work!!
