~ The headers above the standard height doors not only blocked the view, but created a chaotic array of shapes and grids.
~ The 2-1/2-story great room felt cavernous and uninviting for visiting with guests.
~ The kitchen was quite visible from the great room.
~ A new kitchen.
~ That was pretty much it.
~ They got so much more than they expected!
Landon drove over to Ellensburg and walked the home. He noted how the existing view and people pathways were compromised. The door to the master bedroom was right by a bathroom. The den had two entries--one off the entry, the other by that same bathroom--which greatly reduced the usable floor space. The laundry was visible from both the the living and dining room (through the doorway right of the refrigerator). The powder room opened into the living room. To reach the bonus room and guest suite meant walking through the laundry, into the garage, past cars, through a door, and up stairs.
