I am thinking about purchasing a shotgun-style home. It is actually a duplex, so I guess that makes it a double-barrel - ha.
After doing a walk through today with the realtor, we came up with the idea of adding a interior hallway, to enable the reconstruction of the second room into a private bedroom. The hallway would run from the first room, past the second room, & then open up into the third room which I was thinking of dedicating as a formal dining & kitchen. The curren kitchen is pretty small & this would allow greating a bigger kitchen/dining space. Has anyone ever seen this done? Would this be taking away from the character of the original design? The home was built in 1900 & is Denver, CO.
Any advise, tips, words of wisdom would be very appreciated.
