Column-flanked bookcases create a visual definition of the living room and new front entry. The new open staircase adds a sculptural element to the space.
Large wood casement windows were added to bring plenty of natural light into the newly remodeled kitchen. "Peek-a-boo" windows were added into the back splash to have a view into the back yard.
A small mud room area with built-in shelves for coats and shoes adds a second use for the stair landing at the back door.
A previous bedroom was turned into a family room that is open to the newly remodeled kitchen. Large wood casement windows looking out to the back yard bring in lots of natural light.
This half bath on the main floor has a wood casement window with obscure glass to provide privacy yet bring in natural light. The painted wood paneled wainscote echos the Craftsman style of the house.
A lighted niche in the stairway wall displays artwork at eye level. Built-in storage and shelves give the vaulted stair hall aesthetic appeal, as well as, providing additional storage.
