This project consisted of two renovations.  The first was the addition of a small porch and breakfast nook adjacent to the existing kitchen.  This allowed a table for eating while enjoying views of the outdoors in semi-rural Pennsylvania.  A door between the breakfast nook and the porch allowed the owners to step out and sit outside while enjoying coffee, breakfast, or lunch.


The second part of the project involved a new, covered entry between the renovated garage and the kitchen/dining area.  The garage was extended to create a mudroom and the breakfast nook, and to allow access to the kitchen without opening directly into the kitchen.  It also provided a more formal entry into the kitchen without the need to pass through the garage.  Additionally, this increased storage potential within the garage.
