Vaulted ceilings abound in this design, increasing the open, airy feeling of an already spacious plan. An old-fashioned covered porch gives a country flavor to this medium-sized two-story ranch style home. Arched windows add a contemporary touch.
One novel feature is a small balcony that overlooks the living room. Two dormer windows bathe the balcony, living room and entry area in soft natural light. A fireplace with a wide tile hearth spans the corner directly under the balcony.
The only other room that faces the street is called a swing room, so named because it can swing from one use to another. Brightened by a stack of windows with an arch at the top, it could be an art studio, home office, sewing room, media room -- it is totally up to you. Add a closet, and you've got a guest room or fourth bedroom.
Four skylights and a wealth of windows combine to make the sun nook even brighter than the rest of the home. And because it's separated from the kitchen and family room by half walls, light spills over into these areas as well. Sliding glass doors open onto a deck that is also accessible from the master suite.
The kitchen is large enough to handle multiple cooks. A central work island does triple duty by combining extra counter space with a cook top and eating bar. Other kitchen amenities include a dishwasher, a pantry and double sink that faces into the sun nook.
In the master suite, you will find a large walk-in closet and a private bathroom with enclosed toilet and shower. Another bathroom is located adjacent to the family room, just a door away from a generous utility room, complete with a laundry chute, a pull-down ironing board, and space for a freezer. The utility room is also directly accessible from the garage.Three bedrooms upstairs share one bathroom, which could be built with two basins as easily as one. And a full basement or partial basement could also be part of the plan.
All of our plans are designed by licensed architects and residential building designers. Each plan is designed to meet nationally recognized building codes for the year they were created.

All of our plans are designed to provide the information needed to build your home. Because of the wide range of requirements throughout states and municipalities, it is possible that the plans may not have all of the information required by your building department. If this is the case, we recommend hiring a local design professional or engineer who can assist bringing the plans up to your local building code.
Some states require that a licensed architect or engineer review and stamp the plans. If this is the case where you will be building, a local professional will be able to assist you.
