Yeah it is kind of hard to explain. The house is built on a hill and the owner before me decided to install a tuck-under garage. Right now, in order to get to the front door you have to go up 8 feet in elevation from the driveway. This grade change is held up by a retaining wall. So it is feasible grade-wise on the exterior and would make it look better. And I was planning on putting a window in the hole that is above the door. I am attaching an existing and proposed interior layout. In the existing layout, in order to make the stairs more friendly I would have to extend them further into the kitchen.

Thanks
