Well, for years I have wanted to open the kitchen to the living room of my home. Well, one day I had a bit of frustration to unleash so…the wall got it! I knew this was a supporting wall and did not want to go to the bother of having to get an engineer and put in a header, so this is what I come up with. There is an electric line following down one of the studs so I just cut a groove a bit bigger than the cable in the back of one of the inside boards and avoided having to call an electrician. I used cherry stain on fir boards to achieve this look. Finished them with a little wipe on poly. I wish now that I had used walnut, but I like it none the less. My plants are thriving in their new sunlight.
