This kitchen is located on the periphery of a large, old house that was originally designed to accommodate servants. Narrow doorways into a very formal dining room and back hallway made it difficult for the present family’s four children to circulate and interact with their mother, an enthusiastic cook. By enlarging doorways, locating a new eating counter outside of the main work area, and building a screened porch off the kitchen, this room becomes the hub from which the family operates. The existing heart pine cabinets in the room were inventoried and incorporated into the design, while new cabinets to complete the new layout were built to match the old ones.
