Architect Heather Wilson removed prior mistakes and designed a more open space.
Airy Living Addition: Two previous additions were removed to allow for a new vaulted living area that opens to the kitchen and the bigger backyard.
New Study and Dining Room: The formal living room, with its traditional fireplace, saw little use. To save money, they left the brick chimney outside, removed the mantel, and drywalled over the opening. A wall with pocket doors divides the space into two rooms.
Open Kitchen: The reconfigured kitchen works as an axis point for the whole space. A playroom that was located behind the stove wall was converted into a hardworking pantry/laundry room combo.
