Tri-Level, Revisited

A new central hearth room helps unify the disparate pieces of a stock "tried-but-tired" tri-level. This vaulted room now opens to the dining and kitchen areas, while a relocated front door now becomes a useful entry, close to the driveway and with quick access to the mud- and powder-rooms. Extra space in the garage is borrowed to create a much-needed kitchen pantry, and the master bedroom finally gets its own bath. A built-in desk off the dining area creates a computer/homework alcove for the kids.
