This large space was originally two rooms, a small back kitchen with a wood-burning fireplace for cooking and a more formal dining room. The Glynns wanted to keep the open, friendliness of the space but return to the original function of both cooking and eating in this room. However, instead of trying to mingle the formal look of the original dining room and the more rustic but functional look of the original kitchen (originally separated by a wall) they decided to style the space after elements from the kitchen alone.
But first, the 1994 kitchen needed to be removed.
