i am about to completely boycott hgtv. this property brothers episode ripping out walls and destroying a pristine dining room and soaring hallway in favor of an OPEN FLOOR PLAN has me screaming at the tube.
DAMMIT if these people want an open floor plan please friggin use an old house that someone has Already Screwed Up.
No kidding!!! I am forever screaming at the tv when these idiots are tearing out walls, ripping out perfectly good bathrooms, kitchens - same thing with the show (can't think of the name of it), where they show you the potential of a perfectly good house to suit the morons who need to have that open feeling, that great big room because they constantly entertain. If you entertain that much move into a banquet hall! If you are looking for an open floor plan - look at the friggin' mcmansions or the already screwed up ones like Angolito said. HGTV is really getting bad. That renovation show with the girl from MN - she's good....so far.
