An active family of 4 and a dog inhabit this terrific rambler with a fantastic view of the city. But the existing kitchen was sequestered in a small space with no connection to the family room or the view. We removed walls on both sides of the staircase to create that kinship and then, for good measure, removed a few more. Then a new laundry area was carved out and BLAM a wonderful main floor living experience became the new norm! Beautiful cabinetry provided by the awesome Leicht Seattle.
