The kitchen of this 1880s farmhouse was a mishmash of small spaces and additions. The initial plan called for removing walls to open up the space. During demo, the client looked up and said, “Can we capture the space in the ceiling too?” Sure we could! All it took was a few collar ties, light boxes to bounce light into the vault, and a chase to corral all the pipes for the bathroom above. The final result: a light airy space with plenty of room for cooking and socializing in style.
