This 1906 home was remodeled in 1940, leaving the kitchen very long, narrow and dark. There was little light and little counter space. Prior to the remodel, the kitchen was an area the owners wanted to avoid rather than try to enjoy. They wanted to upgrade the kitchen to become a functional and enjoyable area of the home.
The existing floor plan included an exterior porch that was attached to the kitchen. The owners enjoyed their porch area but decided to remove it in order to create additional space for the new kitchen.
