A tiny side vestibule and stairs up to a galley kitchen congested the entry into the home. The rooflines in the back of the house were awkward, and there was no place to sit and enjoy the backyard. Meadowlark created a design that yielded a larger light-filled kitchen, a spacious mudroom area with lots of storage and a seating bench, a full first floor master suite and a sitting porch at the back of the home.
Even with a substantial addition, the main floor of this home is just 896 square feet. To make it feel more spacious, we created a framed opening at the center of the house through the new kitchen addition, the mudroom and back porch.
Energy efficient upgrades – including new windows, upgraded insulation and more efficient appliances – make this home comfortable and healthy to live in. The open progression successfully expands the view, adds natural light and makes the overall home feel larger.
