What an Open-Plan Addition Can Do for Your Old House

It’s no secret that most of the original homes we see in older, established areas simply don’t cut it when it comes to meeting our 21st-century lifestyles, despite many of them being beautiful pieces of architecture. Many of these homes feature individual, boxed-in rooms instead of the open-plan layouts that support our modern way of living. Small, badly positioned windows are also common in these older homes, which means they don’t make the most of views, outdoor living connections or passive-solar design principles.
