Cleverly placed sliding doors provide privacy when necessary and close off messier work areas when guests visit. To the left, a sliding barn door separates a work and darkroom space. The couple has decided their next project will be to transform this space into a kitchen so they won't have to schlep so much during big holiday meals. Over the darkroom/future kitchen space, there is a loft. Currently, the loft is accessible only by a ladder and is used for storage, but a more user-friendly ladder or staircase can be added with ease in the future, opening it up as a sleeping space.
