An Open Floor Plan Updates a Midcentury Home
Brian Brockman and Amanda Brinkman-Brockman fell in love with a midcentury home and bought it — but joke that despite their love for the house, they wanted to change pretty much everything about it.
The Cincinnati home’s kitchen, dining room and living room were separated, and the couple wanted a more open floor plan that would give their kids space to hang out and play nearby while they cooked. The kitchen looked retro, and the homeowners preferred modern finishes. The couple had grand plans for renovating. But first they had to tackle a load-bearing wall that stood in their way.
