When they were house-hunting, Craig and Amanda Zehnder were immediately attracted to a 1901 farmhouse in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood. Although it was in great shape for its age, the kitchen had been gutted in the early 1980s and remodeled in a style that was deficient practically and aesthetically. The Zehnders wanted to redo the space to look like a farmhouse kitchen, as well as make it more functional. The key to enhancing functionality turned out to be moving a stairway whose door opened into the kitchen a few feet to the east and then moving the door to the hall. After that change was made, Craig made mock-ups of the cabinets and counters out of cardboard to make sure the proportions of the new kitchen were correct.
