This home was purchased by a family of six because they had fallen in love with the yard and location. The interior was a problem, though, as it was fragmented and cramped. Food preparation, eating and television viewing is done as a family — and done simultaneously. What’s more, they wanted to bring the out-of-doors indoors. First to go were the kitchen ceiling and a wall separating kitchen from living area. The kitchen was “cathedraled” and a bank of gable end windows installed as well as a skylight. All birch and maple cabinets and a penisula were built on-site and installed. Earth tone sand finishes were applied to the walls in the living area.
