After Floor Plan: Using Unused Bedrooms
The two-bedroom addition was gutted for the new family room, and the kitchen, bath, and mudroom spaces were jiggered.
1. Enlarged the kitchen, relocating the half bath but keeping the existing window. Only the stove wall stayed intact.
2. Turned two bedrooms into one open family space, with a vaulted ceiling and new double-hungs to replace narrow awning windows.
3. Moved the bath, stacked the washer and dryer, and made a mudroom alcove. The side entry now opens into the family room.
4. Added a gas fireplace on a thermostat to heat the expansive new space.
