The “Kitchen Office” is the communications center of the house.

Here, Norm creates a desk with file storage, a shelved, wall-hung cabinet for display and books, a place to conceal lighting, a computer/TV/phone area, a series of pigeon holes for organizing the small stuff, and a cork board for pinning up messages.

Norm is able to isolate the office somewhat from other activity in the kitchen by using a pair of clever wing walls that visually separate the space and provide easy access to the electronic wiring, vital in keeping a busy family connected.
