Two-Timing Kitchen Counter: Indoor & Outdoor

The current issue of Better Homes and Gardens features the delightful home of the Curci family. We were particularly intrigued by their idea to extend the kitchen counter through a window to be usable from an adjacent porch...

Clearly this idea isn't relevant for most people but if you're undertaking a kitchen renovation and you spend a lot of time entertaining on an adjacent porch, this might be a fun idea to consider. (We do wonder about air leakage and how to create a tight seal at the bottom of the window when it's closed in the off-season.)
