First they knocked out the old rear wall.
Caldwell removed the bookshelf divider and the exterior rear wall of the living and dining rooms, spanning the openings with new beams. He then permanently enclosed the porch and extended the house's roof line to form a 9- by 30-foot garden room. Brick-pattern tiles cover the concrete floor.
On the rear wall, three sets of 8-foot sliding glass doors open to a new deck and let sunlight pour into the house. For a visual tie-in, Caldwell also applied cedar to the ceiling of the dining area. Glass doors installed in place of a small dining room window help balance the natural lighting.
