Designed as a vacation retreat home for a couple or single, this home plan is as charming as it is compact. Windows, stacked three high, fill most of its A-frame rear wall, offering a panoramic view of the sea, lake, mountains, or other natural landscape.
This plan is economical to build, heat and maintain. Its footprint, including porches, is only 31 feet wide and 35 feet deep. Clean-lined batt and boards cover the exterior, while sleek twin columns support covered porches on both the front and side.
A lofty, two-story, vaulted ceiling adds to the expansive sense of openness in the great room.
The kitchen is comparatively large for a home this size. It has a roomy walk-in pantry, and plenty of counter space. A raised conversation bar rims the outer edge of the angled peninsula.
Storage closets line the hallway that leads to the front porch, bathroom, and combination utility/hobby room. Laundry appliances hide behind folding doors, so this space could also double as a guest room.
The sleeping area of the master suite could be an entirely open-ended loft, or sectioned off behind the landing for more privacy. The master bathroom boasts a luxurious spa tub.
