A well executed courtyard makes a house memorable as well as more livable. The strong indoor-outdoor connection is a powerful lure but also the geometry of the space, its openings and wall surfaces, and paving materials play important roles,as you can see in modern plan on this post.
If the front door opens directly to the living or dining space there’s often no notation, just the door swing. Door swings trace the swing of the door in and out — good to keep in mind as you think about furniture placement. Sliding doors are noted not as swings but as thin lines parallel to — but thinner than — the line of the wall.
This minimal, modern cottage makes a great lake home, with ample decks, porches and a hot tub on its "lakefront" side. Size and cost are kept to a minimum, but the vaulted ceilings in the main space and bedrooms lend a feeling of spaciousness, while the open plan and large windows and glass doors of the main space bring the outside in. The walls and overhang at the master bedroom are set up for a future screened porch.
