No Living Room – No Dining Room – Just a Lot of Open Space
A covered front porch provides shelter from the elements. Entering the house one cannot help but be impressed with the kind of hallway that was once a standard in older homes of the past. Off to the left is the Quiet Room where sliding pocket doors can be closed providing an area of solitude where one can do some alone work or a place to sit with friends by the fire.
It seems that more and more home activity takes place in and around the kitchen and that is why we made the Gathering Room a place where guests can come together when partying or where family can sit down for a banquet-sized meal. It is not as formal as a dining room and much more than just a place for the kitchen table.
A rotating flat-screen allows for TV viewing from the family room or catching the morning news while having breakfast at the kitchen island. The second floor central hallway provides an open airy environment through the middle of the second floor from front to back with a comfortable built-in sitting area looking out the front window and a rear balcony that can change to a private rest area for the master suite.
