You know the drill, go to Pinterest, find a great inspiring photo and make it happen.
Boom, here it is!
While redoing our 4302 project, the plan was to create a kitchen in a small space, with a great layout and have access to the family room at the back of the house. The original staircase to the kitchen was from the basement access and had you entering the room right where the refrigerator wanted to be. So with the same spirit one would use to move mountains, we moved the staircase. Once we had the precise kitchen layout completed, and measuring about 100 times to be sure it would work, we cut the opening from the kitchen to the back room. We did have to do a cut out in the ceiling too, into the attic space, so you didn’t hit your head when descending the stairs. Big bonus while reconfiguring the space was to find and expose the original shiplap, which was hidden under the 70’s paneling, and make it a feature wall.
