Strategic, quality-of-life upgrades were the goal in this family house. EJM2 removed a chimney from the core of the home in order to allow for bright, open-concept living. A sophisticated kitchen with modern indulgences such as an appliance garage and concealed coffee/tea station, keep the counters clean and the family organized. Increased storage was carved out creatively from existing space in the house. The best part of the ingenious changes: room for a full-sized cedar sauna.
