The design and build team kept the home’s existing 11-foot-high ceiling in the kitchen and dining area and extended that same ceiling height into the new addition where the living room with sliding-glass doors now sits. “Previously you couldn’t get to the backyard from the ground floor space,” says build manager Dan Faires. “Now you can see the backyard when you walk into the home.”

The homeowners love to entertain, so designers wanted to create a space that was functional for them. To do this, they made sure to keep the space feeling light and open by raising the arched doorway that separates the kitchen and living room space and removing the door that previously connected the rooms, creating a clear line of from the kitchen into the living room. They added a peninsula that provides seating, keeping the space functional, but they also included a small area to the left of the breakfast bar that acts as a sort of pass through, making food service between the rooms easy.
Designers wanted everything in this modern home to be connected, so they used glass throughout the design to create this synergy, drawing a line of sight from the front yard, into the home's interior and into the courtyard space.
To create a more open space, Chip and Joanna, hosts of Fixer Upper on HGTV, removed the wall that separated the breakfast nook from the sitting room. To create a connection between the two spaces, the home's original flooring was replaced with modern, slate flooring that carries from the kitchen into the sitting room.
