This client desired an open kitchen that protected the chef yet provided space for a busy family. The home had the room, however rooms were cramped and closed off. To gain needed space, the block garage wall was removed and a new steel beam was installed to support the floor above and the stair landing. The existing kitchen was turned into a mudroom while the garage became the new kitchen. Wide graceful wood steps help blend the old and new. Slab doors, cherry wood and blue colored cabinets, and a waterfall countertop achieve the desired contemporary look. A new bay window with a curved metal roof replaces the old garage door.
