This 1860 antique colonial is located in the historical district near the heart of West Acton, MA. When we were contacted by this client they had talked to numerous contractors and kitchen centers in the area looking for solutions to their old home. The home was built on a small lot and making foot print changes to the structure was not possible. We had to be creative with our space planning. The client had specific requirements for the project. They wanted an island in the kitchen with an open floor plan. The client also wanted bathroom with a shower and a laundry room.
We designed a larger kitchen by removing the wall between the dining room and the kitchen. In order to have proper clearances for the island we had to “borrow” two feet from their formal living room to create a cavity to fit their standard depth refrigerator. The space left in the hallway for the bathroom and laundry room was a challenge to arrange, but our client ended up with the bathroom they wanted and an area for their stackable washer and dryer.
