At every step of the demolition, Vern keeps saying "It's too late to turn back now."
Most of the cabinets are down (only the sink and dishwasher cabinets remain for now) and we can begin to see how the two rooms are going to tie together. The room where Vern is sweeping used to be a formal living room. It will now become the dining room, although there will be a small office in the general area where the closet door is located now.
As a comparison, this is the "before" kitchen.
I know that even if it wasn't too late to turn back, I wouldn't want to.
