Entrance from the wide front porch is direct into the large great room, which flows into the dining and kitchen area. These rooms form a perfectly rectangular area for an easy and casual lifestyle.
The food preparation area is L-shaped and includes better than average work area and cabinet space. The laundry room is offset to the rear of the double carport, and is sized to accommodate a full size washer and dryer.
There are three bed rooms, each with ample closet space. The master bed room is endowed with a vaulted private garden tub bath, including two sinks and a separate toilet and shower stall. An additional full tub bath services the remaining two bed rooms and daytime use. Linen storage is centrally located in the hall, along with a disappearing stair to attic space.
The exterior of this economy minded home plan is horizontal wood siding, embellished with wood columns and wood rail porch, step down gable roof and multi-light windows.
Plan number 289 includes 1,285 square feet of heated living space and is available with a crawl space or slab foundation. All W. D. Farmer plans include construction details for substituting brick, frame or stucco exterior finish.
BUILD THIS HOME ON A SMALL BUDGET
Garden Bath for the Master Suite
The great room for this plan is exceptional for family entertainment and gatherings. A nearby spacious dining area is slightly offset to the front of the home. Dining for large groups could expand into the great room or kitchen area, since it is open to both rooms.
The kitchen is provided with an excellent arrangement of cabinet space and plenty of countertop work surface. Adjacent is the single or double carport. Both include storage at the rear for out of season items or gardening supplies.
A full tub bath is located in the central hall, easily accessible from the two family bedrooms or for daytime use.
The master suite includes a wonderfully sized bedroom, walk-in closet and a private garden bath. A sumptuous bath like this one is a rare find in a home with only 1,244 square feet of heated living space. Separate shower and garden tub along with a double vanity provide the homeowner with a luxurious spa touch.
Behind bi-fold doors in the central hall are the laundry facilities. Nearby is a disappearing stair to attic storage and a coat closet.
A cottage exterior constructed of horizontal wood siding and a hip roof is accented by shuttered windows and covered entrance porch.
