Hub of the Home
The L-shaped kitchen, designed by Smith River Kitchens, includes a wall oven and sink along the window side and a range and refrigerator along the adjacent wall. The island offers workspace and room for casual dining, while an office area holds space for recycling and paperwork.
Mahogany countertops, double-crown molding, salvaged pine floors, Shaker-style cabinets with footed bases, and vintage glass jars wired as pendant lamps give the kitchen its traditional feel.
A "lift-and-slide" mechanism allows the four French doors to double up, then disappear into wall pockets on either side of the 9-foot-wide opening, creating a seamless transition between the kitchen and screened porch.
