This Poets Corner remodel with small addition turned out great.  (Thanks in part to the good taste of the owners and the skill of Coleman Building.) Nancy Kalter came with me to the house warming party and took some house in action shots.  It was afternoon on a very sunny day.

First here is the before and after first floor plan. (Roof deck remodel upstairs (plan not shown)  is big enough for the whole family to sleep out under the stars and also a vegetable garden!)

The most important component of this project was rearranging things to make the most of various spaces in a small house. There had been several strange additions over the years that made for a lot of wasted space.

Looking east in this spacious new kitchen with fir cabinets, vaulted ceiling, corner windows, LED lights,

We added about 65 SF and way more storage. The old kitchen was actually a hallway with constant traffic flow through the work area. Now traffic stays away from the main work area.
