  • 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.
