A fresh approach to the smaller home is to add luxuries and amenities that are usually only in larger homes. This plan accomplishes that by providing a combination of qualities.
Entrance is from a covered front porch with boxed columns. The activity room has a vaulted ceiling creating an airy feel immediately upon entering the home. An offset in this room provides the perfect nook for an entertainment center or computer desk.
The combination kitchen-dining room has an abundance of storage and counter top space, including a convenient desk tucked away in the angle. There is also an island cabinet for meal preparation. The laundry room is adjacent and includes access to the garage, or the basement stair.
There are three bedrooms, all grouped together, creating a quiet zone in the home. The two front bedrooms share a hall bath, and one of these bedrooms includes a vaulted ceiling. A disappearing stair to the attic is indicated in the hall.
The master bedroom includes a tray ceiling, walk-in closet and a garden bath with double vanity and separate shower and whirlpool tub.
The exterior style is country traditional with multiple gable roof lines and an arch top window highlighting the facade.
All of these features are available in only 1,199 square feet of living space.
