Another buffet bult into a nok with a built in cabinet next to it. Wall support defining nook could carry sewer pipe to upstairs. This would give us more space for the formal dining area and help define it as a more formal space.
Also Note the tile floor throughout with rug on top
EXACTLY what I want to do in family room on large wall enclosing!!! Either stone across the arch as well, or make ceiling line straight and add a beam to compliment a beam mantle (and columns if added anywhere in house).
