NW Green Home Tour 2021 Spotlight: Garden Kitchen Addition

NW Green Home Tour 2021 Spotlight: Garden Kitchen Addition

On May 1, Mighty House Construction and LD Arch Design will be presenting a Garden Kitchen Addition at the NW Green Home Tour. This home’s original small kitchen was showing some wear, and the stairs out to the back were narrow and not connected to the kitchen, so having people over for outdoor events was awkward. With a small addition that expands the kitchen and rebuilds the stairs, the kitchen is now large enough for parties and has a good connection to outdoors for entertaining. Come ask us about the green features that make this project environmentally friendly.

 

Tour the project with Matterport!
