Kill deck and window to expand kitchen?
Hi, we bought a house recently and are now figuring out what kind of work we want to do before we move in. My wife thinks the kitchen is small for a 3-bed house and wants to expand it. We have a deck behind our kitchen and she thinks we will not used it and it's a waste of space. The idea would be to get rid of deck and move the kitchen wall. But that would force us to loose the window. By city code we can't have a window parallel to the other property. That's why those decks exist.
I can't imagine liking a kitchen without windows. I like the light and the fresh air.
If we do that expansion we could also get some more space for the bathroom.
See the red lines on the image attached.
I like the deck and I think I will use it. It also bring tons os light into the kitchen and nook area.
There might be another way to make the kitchen feel bigger and work better.
Any ideas? Thoughts?
I appreciate it.
