Meanwhile, inside the house, he and Jack made low-ceilinged rooms cozy with fine old Pennsylvania chests and tables on polished wide-board floors partially covered with flower-strewn hooked rugs. They have scoured local galleries for paintings by Bucks County artists to hang on the wood-and-plaster walls. Around the time I got to know Renny, he and Jack decided they needed more room for cooking. Their kitchen was cramped and dark, with two little eyebrow windows. A discreet addition, which enlarged the kitchen by half, resulted in a long, sunlit room that includes a glorious glassed-in porch full of wicker for sitting and dining among Renny’s potted angel-wing begonias and yellow clivias. From another porch, recently inserted beside the kitchen, it’s just a few stone steps up to the start of what has become, through Jack’s enthusiasm and vision, a series of culinary garden rooms.
