About this Plan

  • This is an expanded version of our popular cottage house plan 18222BE and gives you an extra bedroom suite located by the garage. Three shed dormers, a barrel arched covered entry and 2-car garage set off at an angle combine to create a beautiful home.
  • Inside, abundant windows maximize views and natural light. The dormer over the foyer brings additional light into the living, dining and kitchen areas.
  • Wide hallways and doorways make for easy traffic flow, even for those that need Barrier Free Access. The front flex room off the foyer is perfect for a den or home office.
  • The kitchen is designed for both efficiency and aesthetics. The large island aids in food preparation, additional storage and allows for a nice seating area. There are both pantry cabinets and a spacious closet pantry.
  • The owners' suite has an attractive bay window with window seat. The handsome master bath has an extra spacious shower.
  • The bonus second floor gives you a full bedroom suite with a kitchenette making this great for long term visitors, an in-law or nanny suite.
  • The 2-car garage is wider and deeper than most garages, with 10'-wide by 8'-high doors.
  • Related Plans: Eliminate the bonus level with house plan 18241BE.
  • Several versions eliminate the main floor guest suite. House plan 18222BE has a smaller bonus level while 18221BE retains the bonus suite. Get a 3 car garage and large bonus level with house plan 18249BE.
  • Get finished lower levels with house plans 18238BE (3,994 sq. ft. with elevator), 18223BE (3,432 sq. ft.).
  • Get a dramatic screened porch off the master suite with house plan 18245BE (3,253 sq. ft.).
