About the Living Area: The living area serves multiple purposes: as a home theater, a guest bedroom (thanks to a sleeper sectional), a gathering and dining room, and a staging area for outdoor parties (thanks to the adjoining kitchenette). Tasks are seamlessly integrated thanks to smart construction and interior design that addresses the needs of the homeowner and guests. "The living area is the perfect spot for watching TV or a movie, socializing or just hanging out as you wait for a great meal from the grill," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "The kitchenette has everything you need to make entertaining inside or outside on the terrace easy and convenient."
