I think it's a perfect use of space, and I will be putting in another on the lower door if she OKs it.

Considered full extension slide-outs? Good sliders will carry 100# or more.
Good idea, that custom counter height. Many people might think it's too much trouble, but man, not for the person working there hundreds of hours!

Ye know, I wondered if anybody did that "clog" thing; seemed like it might be a little "tippy", but I'm a tall guy and don't have any experience there...
Those transition areas front and back sound like they really help with house keeping. My sister uses the front door mostly and she lays down a track of runners and "samples" from the front door to the kitchen. Works, sorta, to save the formal floors, but looks a little bush league.
Her husband has been trying to make the house "shoeless" for years, but he has so many shoes that the entries just become a booby trap zone where one false step and you twist an ankle on a pile of footwear. And then there's the "back door shoes" and the "front door shoes" and the problem when they are the same pair (my problem anyway - I'm a one pair person).
Oh well. I can see how nice it is to keep outside dirt outside, but there _are_ some logistic problems there.
