When we first consult with clients, we determine their needs, goals, desires, and budget for their project. Once we have a clear idea of what is desired, we put together a CAD drawing like you see here.
For this home, we proposed completely ripping everything out and basically starting from scratch. The existing space had a kitchen separated from the dining room by a small doorway. The opposite end of the dining room opened up to the front space in the home, near the entrance and staircase. We wanted to remove this wall and enlarge the entire space, which would move the doorway to the kitchen area, rather than the dining room. This open layout would allow easy access to all parts of the downstairs area.
The clients agreed on this course of action, and the project was scheduled.
