Kitchen dropped ceiling

 

This is the header that divided the main kitchen area from the nook (which used to be a porch).  Once this was removed, we had the full height across the entire kitchen.  This shot was taken from the kitchen side, so the area behind the header is the cavity above the nook.  This was completely non-structural, so it was really surprising that they built it out of sandwiched 2x12s.  Obviously, lumber used to be a lot cheaper.
