Everything is interconnected, and changing one thing will often open other new and exciting
possibilities. In this case, expanding the rear of the home and relocating the kitchen to open to a new family room ended up shifting the dining room as well, which created an inviting, light-filled procession and line of vision through these living spaces. This made the house feel spacious and highlighted the beautiful and expansive backyard area that was formerly hidden. We added a second story master bedroom suite that retained the airy and charming barrel vault ceiling and clerestories, and remodeled the rest of the first floor to complete the project. The exterior’s design complemented the original architect’s style while working within the clients’ budget to expand and modernize their home.
