When Jessica and Jonathan renovated their Eichler-style Denver home, they knew exactly what they wanted to be able to do when it was all said and done: cook together in front of the fireplace while watching it snow. (Who wouldn't want that?) Here's what they changed to make to happen: They removed all the interior kitchen walls and overhead cabinets, extended the countertop line around the adjacent wall, and installed built-in shelving below the cabinets to compensate for the lost space. Now the large island (with its awesome peek of orange!) is a wonderful place for guests to mill about while the couple cooks dinner.
