The dilemma; the children have grown and the grand children are coming and coming. This family purchased their Northstar cabin 25 years prior and were running out of space as their family grew. The goal was to add more living space, a much needed larger kitchen, a dining room for 10, a small master suite, a small den for the grand children and reconfiguring the existing space to yield 2 more bedrooms out of one bunk room. All were accomplished by creative space planning and a slightly enlarged building footprint.

"Kitchens are really the new living rooms of today's homes,"
Today's kitchens are more than just a space to prepare and consume food. Today's Kitchens have become the heart, soul and headquarters of most homes. These modern rooms are now also places to do homework, entertain, pay bills, watch TV and surf the Internet. Because of these added uses, the size of today's kitchens have almost doubled in size compared to those of the mid-twentieth century. As designers it is our goal to meet the challenges our clients present to us by designing kitchens that meet the demands of the 21st century lifestyle.
