The residence owners enjoy entertaining and hosting parties. While the current kitchen opened up to the living area, it was still awkward space for congregating and setting up a serving area. Off the back were two bedrooms and a bath. Adjacent to the living room, down a hall, a dining room.
After discussion and a couple of design concepts to create and open the space, it was settled to turn the dining room into a bedroom and expand the kitchen into the rear bedroom for dining space. It also allowed an island to be put in and more storage space. The new room opens to the back deck and new covered expansion.
