|"Before"- the 70's addition that cut the house off from the back yard|
The feature that adds the most bang for the buck might be the the new stairwell, which creates not one, but TWO new spaces that will help the house live large for a young family. At the bottom of the stairs, there's a great little nook for an office, and at the landing, a beautiful window seat for reading, napping, or even a spot for that extra overnight guest during SXSW.
The kitchen is pretty cool, too. The existing kitchen got buried by an addition in the 70's. We're moving the kitchen to the back of the house to re-connect to the yard.
