Without changing the house's footprint, the team knocked down walls, moved the kitchen into adjacent bedroom space, and opened it to the dining room and an office that took the old kitchen's place. Columns and cabinets help define areas within the free-flowing plan, while period details sustain the bungalow's Craftsman soul. The kitchen's big enough for all to gather, without throwing off the scale of the house. "It's now the heart of our home," says Eliza, "and that's what we really wanted."
Craftsman-inspired cabinets rise to double-crown molding that matches the trim in adjacent rooms.
