room to grow

“The mid-90s ex­ten­sion in­cludes an ex­tra room off the back of the garage,” says An­drew. “It has plumb­ing for a kitch­enette so it would be easy to put in a bath­room and turn it into a guest bed­room with an en­suite or later, a teenage re­treat. But as is, the room has no in­ter­nal con­nec­tion to the house. From the new front door, we could add a hall­way link­ing the front of the house to the ex­ten­sion. It would still be self-con­tained – and there­fore fu­ture-proof – but it would be an in­te­gral part of the home and you wouldn’t have to get wet ac­cess­ing it in the rain. The new hall­way would also pro­vide a glimpse of the back vista from the front of the house, let­ting in some of the north­ern light and giv­ing a hint of the lovely as­pect out the back.”

“The kitchen is dark, dated and dis­con­nected” LISA KOEHLER, PANEL IN­TE­RIOR DEC­O­RA­TOR

A bright front door adds per­son­al­ity and wel­comes guests into your home.
