Dining room and alcove replace little garage.
Adjoining the kitchen, architect Tom Bosworth's one-car garage was in a good place for a dining room. Bosworth closed off the garage door with a wall set 2 feet out into the driveway, but he left the door frame intact to create an alcove inside. For more light and garden access, he replaced a formerly solid side wall with two glass-paneled doors and a matching-size window. Floor fixtures plugged into wall outlets provide night lighting. To make the floor of the new room level with the rest of the house (the garage had been a full step down), Bosworth supported walnut-stained oak with framing. This also create space for a forced-air heating duct leading to a floor vent.
