Even when my house is less than perfect and smells like dog, if I can look out the window to beauty. I'm good.

For years I longed for a kitchen I could view the sunrise and a family room to view the sunset. Four years ago with our newly purchased home I realized my longing to be true. A cup of coffee with my husband and music from happy song birds. Complete bliss.

Fabulous! It's even lovelier when you see it in person. Another great job by the architect.

I like what they've done, from opening up the floor plan to adding big windows. The only thing that really makes it look unfinished to me is the unfinished floor and chipped edges of the wall they knocked down. I know they want this to be some kind of an artsy statement but I think most people won't see it in that light. To "ordinary" people this looks like an unfinished project. Other than that, love the renovation.

Loved the reclaimed wood on the staircase and the back window wall. To me, it would have made sense to pair the kitchen bench with a table to create a dining area and use what is now the dining area as a family room -- much easier to keep an eye on kids. I was also not crazy about the new roofline. It felt very early-70's contemporary to me with a portion jutting up to accommodate the clerestory windows.
