Family Room

The new family room, previously the dining room, connects to the kitchen through an expanded doorway, so that what would have been a little-used formal space became a constantly occupied informal one. A bay-window bumpout in the kitchen—a replica of other bays in the house—is the only expansion to the existing footprint, making room for a casual eating area in the new, more communal kitchen.

The back staircase was opened up with balusters; its formerly solid walls had contributed to the compartmentalized feeling at the back of the house.
