WARRENTON, VIRGINIA --DECK HOUSE REDUX
This early 1980's deckhouse, beautifully situated in a higher elevation in rural Fauquier County, Virginia, had existing interior elements needing enhancement or elimination. The existing ceilings,white cedar tongue and groove with Douglas Fir beams, needed no improvements. The kitchen and fireplace however, were sorely out of place in this home. The old kitchen was cramped, outdated, and dysfunctional. One issue was a pantry awkwardly located behind the kitchen on a stair landing. This was relocated with one easy structural change. Efficiency of the kitchen was further improved by eliminating cabinetry on the wall opposite the big window. This allowed for a large long spacious island--large enough to locate a slide in induction range properly vented by a sleek stainless steel chimney hood. Ledgestone was applied to the existing brick fireplace. A screened in deck, was designed by Michael Lysczek Architect; he expertly aligned it with the roofline and horizontal footprint of the kitchen,which further contributed to allowing the "outdoors in" feel of the entire space.
