This growing family need more space, more functional space and more beautiful space.
They needed a kitchen that 2 cooks could function in.
They needed something durable for the lower cabinets, so they would not be worried that their young children could damage them. But they wanted the newly opened space to have a light, bright feeling.
Adding a 2nd bathroom for this family of 5 was imperative. Having a 4th bedroom made it possible for grandma to visit frequently. Opening the space to the outside courtyard gave them the inside/outside living the kids needed.
