This house had a very nice floor plan, but dated finishes and an unfortunately located fireplace. Opening up this bearing wall created a light, bright, open kitchen with views to the backyard and great room.
A new take on the Sunken Living Area. While open to the Kitchen area, the drop in elevation gives the room a separate feel while still being connected. This room is at the back of the home and opens out onto the deck. I love sunken rooms!
