MICHIANA RENOVATION  With the main living area on the second floor, the views to Lake Michigan were lovely, but for those working in the kitchen, its own dark little room, it was pretty dismal.  We removed walls, raised the ceiling and increased the kitchen’s size with a small addition, opening it up to the living room, dining room and the views.  We also included a screened porch off the kitchen and dining room, and increased the size of a bedroom to accommodate more guests.
