A bay door and 15 extra inches.

A bay door and 15 extra inches A bay-shaped extension added a scant 15 inches to an entry foyer, but it makes it much brighter and less cramped. Before, a pair of solid double doors blocked light and, when opened, just missed the stairs to the second floor. Homeowners Michaline and John Youngblood removed them and installed the bay, with 20-inch-wide sides and a single door--all containing beveled-glass panels. The bay's foundation rises from the existing porch; hardwood flooring surfaces the inside.
