About This Plan
This compactly designed house is so efficiently arranged that it incorporates all the features of much larger homes while allowing the construction sum to remain modest.
A deeply recessed entranceway shelters visitors.
The first impression upon entering the beautifully proportioned foyer is that of a roomy, traditional American home.
The large living room with curved corners spans the entire left side of the home with two perfectly aligned archways on either side of the foyer.
Both the living room and the formal dining room are refreshed with healthy cross ventilation.
The dining room is so designed as to eliminate the need to negotiate table and chairs when moving from one room to another.
Generous counter space can be found in the kitchen along with a useful floor-to-ceiling pantry.
Pocket doors close the kitchen off from view when entertaining.
A triple window bathes the stair landing with light and illuminates the wide second floor passage.
This passage leads to the three bedrooms and to one of the two bathrooms.
Both the minor bedrooms enjoy cross ventilation and feature arched alcoves to hold dressers, which would ordinarily protrude into the room.
The generously-sized master bedroom has cross ventilation, two closets and a private bathroom, completing the upper floor.
A large roof over a roomy attic will allow for future expansion, and will easily accept the addition of dormers and skylights.
