We undertook an extensive remodel of this Southeast Portland foursquare. By gutting the small, dysfunctional kitchen and annexing space from an under-utilized back pantry and mudroom, we created a large and airy cooking and dining space. Elsewhere in the house we introduced box beams in the dining room; a fireplace mantel and built-in shelving in the living room; a wood ceiling and wainscoting in the upstairs bathroom; and a deep-cased opening, between the entry hall and the living room which creates ledges for seating and plants.
