Fireplace in new family room

Is it time to make more living space in your home? In the 50’s and 60’s it was common to have a single living room or family room for a 2 or 3 bedroom home. With changes in our lifestyles having just one room where the family can gather or for piano’s, TV or a library just does not work anymore!

The solution? Add family or rec room! A family or rec room can be used a a media center with a large TV and theater style seating or a pool table and a sectional couch. The room can also be set up with a piano, maybe even a grand! and shelves for books and a reading nook to make your very own library.
