Ultra-Modern Ranch Getaway
Inside, the plan to convert the gallery into a home was fairly simple: Use the majority of the existing space for a wide-open living, dining and kitchen area that overlooks Green Bay, and carve out two guest bedrooms. The Zabjecks also added 800 square feet for a master suite, screen porch and wraparound deck.
Contemporary design is highlighted throughout the home. For example, tall, angled fireplace (left) dominates the living and dining areas and mimics the off-center entry. The Italian "wave" light fixture above the dining table also brings in a sleek, contemporary vibe; an identical one hangs in the kitchen.
"So many Door County homes are cottagey, but we wanted something different," Tom says.
