I love the way it frames the entrance and creats a bit of a 'foyer'...well.......HE wantsto knock out that wall and move the stairs (behind said wall) to another location....to make the living room bigger....I'M willing to live with a smaller living room to keep the Wall and Arch...HE says he'll put other Arches in somewhere else( i guess he thinks that will appease me) ...NO it wont...I want THIS Arch....I also like the way the Stairway meets the upstairs Hallway which will also be ruined if he moves the Stairs! ARGGGG! He keeps insisting and he's probably going to win and now I'm depressed because he is TOTALLY changing my COOL 1880's house!!!!!! I'm also PISSED right now if you hadn't noticed!
I have no idea why he even bothered to have me check out the house before buying it...since it really didn't matter if I 'liked' it since he plans to pretty much demolish anything I DID like!!arrg..I want to scream!
