Dear Soffits, Its not us, its you...

Here are two pics of the house after we removed the soffits from the kitchen and entry. The entry was really low and felt like you were entering a hobbit hole. The dropped ceiling wrapped all the way around to the kitchen and was strange to say the least. I thought we'd open it to find wires, ducts, and maybe a body or two but it was just empty space framed with huge 2"x 8" and 2" x 10" beams...none of which were load bearing...weird. I suppose trees didn't matter much back in the 60s. Anyway these pics are after the ceiling has been reframed and drywalled. Also widened a doorway into the kitchen ans learned that the 2" x 4" on the floor were not even attached to the foundation. Nice job original builders.
