​Great Room Renovation

This unique home renovation project has two main focuses, the first is expanding the kitchen for better flow and outdoor access, achieved through a revised layout and the installation of a sliding glass door. The primary highlight, however, is the expansion of the great room, capitalizing on the cathedral ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows. This design respects the original intent while creating a spacious living area with a grand central fireplace surrounded by energy-efficient windows, seamlessly merging modern aesthetics with the home's original charm.
