GOLD Whole House Less Than $200,000 JACKSON & LEROY REMODELING, SALT LAKE CITY, JACKSONANDLEROY.COM Rather than relocating to a different neighborhood for a bigger home, the family chose to remodel its existing space. The design combined the existing kitchen with the adjacent living room to create a large, light space. The bearing wall between the kitchen and living room was replaced with a new beam and posts concealed in finish carpentry. The stairway was relocated to allow the conversation and traffic to flow better. In addition, the Salt Lake Valley panoramic views from the living room are more easily enjoyed. An oversized center kitchen island includes adequate seating and preparation space. The old, dark office space was opened up to the entry foyer with glass French doors and furnished with wall-to-wall custom cabinets. That efficiency allows for a grand piano and formal chairs to complete the transformation from a cluttered office to an elegant, formal living room. Wide select hickory flooring runs throughout the kitchen, dining room, living room and entry to create unity between the spaces.
