Advice, "If I were to make any major changes, I would get rid of the fireplace. It just ended up being a huge hassle with everything that goes into building a gas fireplace -- the gas lines, etc." Dean's key recommendation: "Never hire anyone on time and materials. Always do the job on a flat rate bid. Never ever give anyone a job unless there is a penalty for being late on the job. Your money is on the line but the workers don't see it that way." For his project, every sub had a flat rate deal. They were given timelines to finish their portion of the project. If the job took 2 days longer than estimated, the worker paid the daily penalty fee. This kept the job moving in the right direction. It kept subs from wasting time on the job.
Losing wall space for your photos and artwork is another good reason to keep a wall intact. Fewer walls also means fewer electrical outlets; concealing wires in a large, open space can be tricky. Finally, if you hate seeing a mess, open-concept living might not be for you, unless you live alone or have roommates who are also neat freaks. Toy chaos or messy kitchens are easily seen in open floor plans. Staying tidy, or at least having proper storage, is key for open-concept living.
