This 1,200-square-foot remodel and addition was created for a young family on a tight budget. The remodel involved the reassignment of spaces within an existing framework. Inefficient spaces were repurposed, and a covered porch was enclosed to form an expanded kitchen/dining area. The project included a new laundry center, and a secret reading loft which allows the children to be near the general activity of the home. A homework alcove with rolling barn doors replaced the old kitchen.
