12 square feet was all they had to add.
O'Brien-Smith relocated the rear entry and some interior walls while retaining the house's sense of room definition and enclosure. He made room for a bright breakfast area (looking out on the garden), a new entry with adjoining telephone area, mud room, pantry, and half-bath. Being frugal with added space left room in the budget for top-quality details like the decorative ceiling molding and a stainless steel pot rack and exhaust fan. To update the kitchen, O'Brien-Smith divided it lengthwise by installing an island with gas cooktop and storage for mixing bowls and cooking appliances. Refrigerator, sink, and stacked ovens line up across from the island in an elongated version of the classic work triangle; a bank of cupboards and counter space fill the opposite wall.
