Like many families, the Mortons like to congregate in the kitchen, but with four children, Roy and Becky were out of space.
The problem is that they love their old farmhouse cottage and didn't want to change what they had. The couple figured they needed three basic kitchen areas: a place to fix food, an eating area and a comfortable spot for just hanging out and enjoying the day. Their solution? Three existing rooms.
The kitchen's original footprint was kept intact to keep it in sync with the age of the home. An adjacent sunroom was turned into a dining area with a colorful, painted table and chair set. A covered porch was screened in to make it more livable throughout the year.
