In our 1940s house, we opened up a wall between the kitchen and dining room, adding a penninsula to separate our new breakfast area from the main kitchen. We also opened up a "window" which overlooked a formally unused space in our addition, turning it into an arched pass-thru to a new formal dining room. We redid our teeny-tiny powder room and replaced the old formica built-ins in our family room with those made of...wood! We also refinished all the wood floors in the house.

We are so fortunate to have had a fantastic GC who was here every weekday from start to finish, enabling completion within 8 weeks.

We absolutely love our "new" house!
