Olsen Photography / Ann Sellars Lathrop
The family room was built where a poorly constructed (and poorly insulated) back porch once existed. The room is made even more dramatic by its cathedral ceiling, wood beams, and natural light—from above and all three sides. "Always place windows on two walls or more," advises Lathrop. "It expands your space and brings natural light in."
