Montclair House

One small addition to this house in Montclair, NJ cured all of its layout problems in one go.  The addition was just big enough for a small mud room, laundry, and half bathroom.  But it let us take the back door out of the sitting room.  This made a huge difference in a small room made unfurnishable by five door openings.  Suddenly, we had room for a sofa.

The old kitchen had been an awkward size: too narrow for an island but too wide for easy use.  Now, not only is it considerably more spacious, but everything is within reach.  We replaced its backsplash with a strip of windows to open up views to the backyard.
