W.L. Construction, Broadleaf Architecture, and the homeowners collaborated to keep the original “bones” of this home while rearranging the interior walls. Out of this shuffle appeared a new entry, hallways, an entertainment room, and a garage. The kitchen was also relocated from the west to the east side of the house for the morning sun. The owners were focused on keeping the budget and the square footage in check. This prompted an initial pause when we all realized that the “wants” created a bigger house and budget than was desired. We all dug in and came up with a tighter design that really worked on all levels. Elements of the old “clerestory” design are present in the entry. This process brought out the best in all of us as well as this now very livable home.
