Adding an Outdoor Kitchen
The owners of this Eastern Shore summer home decided that they needed a better spot for entertaining their far-flung kids,
grandkids, and friends. They enlisted Washington, D.C., architect and friend Merle Thorpe to build an open-air addition where everyone gets together to cook, mingle, and catch the fabulous views and breezes on their
Chesapeake Bay creek.
Architect Merle Thorpe designed the 40- by 19-foot addition (right) to nestle into the existing trees.
