|Living Room and addition. Removed clerestories around the fireplace and small windows at the addition create a darker-than-intended living area|
|Kitchen - The original clerestories would have been above the cabinetry above the range|
|Secondary bedroom - we like the bedspread|
The Master Bedroom shows fairly cluttered, but like many Krisels this wasn’t a large home, and used tricks like open beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and clerestories to open up space. Unfortunately all of these have been removed, so rooms show tighter and smaller than planned by the architects. Both bathrooms have been renovated in a very generic style indicative of materials found at do-it-yourself stores. The secondary bedrooms are positioned at the back of the home, and show as tight as the master bedroom.
