Architects refer to the underlying structure of a home as the bones. This structural frame, so fundamental to architecture, is often concealed behind finishes, layers of drywall, wood, tile and cabinetry. Exposing it to view and incorporating it into living spaces provides a number of interesting opportunities and unique visual effects. It’s not, however, trivial to do so.
