In the opening segment of last year’s Rehab Addict Nicole Curtis, @nicolecurtis, laments “I just want to see brick”.  Well I know where the brick walls are located in my house, the question is do I have the strength and energy to pound off the plaster to expose it.  I think I’ll have to choose my battles.  In the hall way leading to the bedrooms/office is the back of the fireplace.  About 8’x9′ of plaster to expose it.  Not sure about tackling that much, but I do think it will be cool.

On the second floor the chimney narrows to about 2′, but 3 of 4 sides will be enclosed in closets, so is that worth it?  1 side, inside master bath DEFINITELY, but the other three I’m not so sure.

Then there is the kitchen.  It took only about 30 minutes to pound off the bottom half, so now I need to rework my kitchen design to take advantage of this great feature.  Open shelving utilizing the wood from the walnut trees I’m cutting down was the first thing that came to mind.  Cabinets with glass doors and no back is another thought.
