    Stories

  • People who feel drawn to simplicity will find much to appreciate in this home plan. Call it a cabin, a bungalow or a vacation retreat. Whichever designation you chose, this home is charming. And being small, it's as economical to build as it is to maintain.
  • Slender wooden posts support and define a long front porch that wraps around to the right. Exposed rafter tails along the roof's edge create visual interest there, while cedar shake shingles give a rustic texture to the exterior, above the batt and board siding.
  • Entering, you step through one of the two atrium doors into a surprisingly large and sunny vaulted great room. Windows line much of the side wall, and a kitchen with a large work island fills the rear. If a wood or gas flame stove is part of your dream, the front corner by the door is an ideal location.
  • A stacked washer/dryer is nearby, hidden behind doors that front the hallway leading to the back porch. Shelves fill the other half of the alcove. Its lower half could be outfitted with a folding counter atop storage cabinets. More storage is available in a smaller alcove across from the bathroom.
  • Two rooms fill the rest of the left side. The house plan's front bedroom is larger and boasts a wide closet. The second room could be used as a study or another bedroom. A pull-down ladder there provides handy attic access.
  • In the basement version, the width of the home is extended 4' and the basement stairs will run in the great room alongside the master bedroom wall.
