A lot of older homes are kind of pokey inside, too dark and too many walls for modern tastes. Most of us prefer a more open feel to our living spaces.
This fellow wanted to remove some interior walls to create a more open kitchen/dining area. I visited his home, took notes on the construction, and was able to help him get a building permit by providing calculations and drawings. A simple job, and he was satisfied. CSES helps with this sort of project frequently.
