Couple Builds Add-on Kitchen for Space to Entertain

Twenty-five years ago Elisabeth Byram and her husband, Jim, built on to their house, creating a brand-new kitchen and keeping room with more space to entertain. To this day their design choices have proven to be timeless.

Jim and Elisabeth Byram love to entertain. They find joy in hosting church groups and community social gatherings in their home. When they first moved into their charming cottage, Elisabeth says the original kitchen space was probably a 10×10-foot square, and while it didn’t deter them from enjoying social engagements it did prompt them to add more space. “We wanted our home to be used,” Elisabeth says.
