Prairie House Remodel - Phase II

Six years ago we gave this house the facelift that turned it into a Prairie-style house and remodeled the master suite while we were there. This time we're working on the back side of the house. Our mandate this time? Make the beautiful Prairie-style house more family-friendly.

The plan is to create an informal family-oriented area that also establishes a connection with the back gardens. The new space needs to be separate from yet related to the existing formal areas of the house.

In addition, the family entrance to the house (up a flight of stairs from a tuck-under garage) needs to be made more useful. That means expanding and reconfiguring the mud room to accommodate all the sports and school gear that comes with teenaged children, and moving the laundry room to the main floor just off the mud room.
