Kitchen with Library and Guest Bath

The new Guest Bathroom is enclosed within the library walls; a reclaimed wood bench near the Entry and the Bay Window oversized built-in sofa provide storage and gathering spaces for the children. The Kitchen was completely remodeled with a new island as a focus point.

What is the depth of the window seat (from wall to face of drawers)?

The bench is 3' deep, it's deep and a bit over-sized so that it serves as a lounging spot for the kids.

They were custom made by a local window & door maker -
If you are looking for French doors with divided lights we recommend Marvin, they can also make them custom.
