The home plan's natural wood exterior allows it to blend harmoniously into a woodsy vacation retreat setting. Craftsman windows and wood detailing add to its charm.
Both the porch and main floor are about one flight up from the garage. Wooden handrails rim the exterior's front stairway, which climbs to the entry porch. Another stairway, in the garage, offers interior access as well.
Entering, you step into a vaulted foyer that is open to the vaulted living room/dining room to the right. Plenty of natural light washes in through wide side windows crowned by a gently arched clerestory. This window set fills much of the gabled side wall. The front corner makes an ideal location for a gas fireplace or a home entertainment center.
More light spills in through sliders in the dining area. These provide easy access to the covered patio.
A long, raised and angled eating bar rims the peninsular counter that marks the boundary between the dining room and kitchen. Standing at the sink, you face across that bar, into the dining room, and are within easy view of the living room. Other kitchen features include: built-in appliances and a roomy walk-in pantry.
The house plans' utility room, small bathroom and master suite fill the rest of the main floor. The master suite boasts a huge walk-in closet, plus its own private bathroom with dual vanity and an oversized shower. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, along with a loft and yet another bathroom.
