What a difference 4 feet make Essay

A 4-foot-deep addition blends easily with the rest of this house but
does much to improve brightness, comfort, and openness between rooms.

First, the old outside wall with its leaking sliding-glass doors
was replaced by a 21-foot-long, 6-by-14 beam. Running from the beam to
the new outside wall, short lengths of 4-by-6 rafters look like
extensions of the living room rafters.

The new wall has one set of French doors, and double-glazed windows
with operable panels set at floor level for ventilation. Indoors along
the windows, a 4-foot-wide tiled band runs from the kitchen along the
expanded living room to the family room. The tile absorbs winter
sunlight for solar heating as well as making an easy-to-clean surface
between the outdoors and the carpeted floor.
