The solution presented itself.
With a little excavation of the sloped yard, a new Master Suite was added, along with a new Dining Room, and expanded Kitchen and bedroom.
L - R: Kitchen, Dining Room, Master Bedroom. The three spaces define the south and west sides of the new Garden Terrace.
The new Dining Room flows off of the living room, and is defined by its 10-ft ceiling. Large sliding doors and clerestory windows welcome garden and mountain views.
The new Master Bedroom opens onto the new Terrace.
The Kitchen was expanded and completely renovated.
