The homeowners wanted to improve their experience of approaching and entering their home, with the need for many energy efficient upgrades and love to other areas of their home. They loved their neighborhood, but needed a better kitchen and a more open flow.
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.
