Moving the kitchen from its former dark corner near the garage into the airy addition had other benefits. It freed up space for a wide entrance hall with a new side entrance surrounded by windows.

To balance out the rear addition, Weber added a massive dormer to the sloping front of the house, transforming what used to be a cramped attic space into a bright studio and guest room.

Ten years later, the Osers haven’t reached that stage, Katherine says, but it’s comforting to know that the house is ready if and when they do. “I tell Luther all the time how much we love the house,” she says. “It’s one of the best things that’s happened to us in our lifetime.”
