A little preparation can go a long way toward evaluating floor plans. Start by creating a list of common and high-importance events and experiences. These might include: Walking in the front door for the first time. Lying in bed at night or waking up in the morning, getting dressed and ready for your day or to go out at night, preparing food daily and with friends, doing laundry and other chores, hanging out with the family reading, playing games, watching TV, entertaining a small group, throwing a big party.
This home fits well on an urban infill typical city lot. It has neighborhood-friendly front and back covered porches and features a dramatic two story living room that is overlooked by an upstairs hall and an upstairs studio/bedroom. The main floor plan is wide open and very flexible.The house features a large optional basement rec room with a large terraced window well for great daylighting
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.
Soaring window walls and framing overhangs dramatize the court, turning it into a true outdoor living room at the center of the house. From the street, it’s impossible to tell what lies ahead — you see only the garage and a ribbon of walkway to a sheltered entry. That remarkable stone-paved residential piazza is the grand surprise just beyond the front door, on the other side of a small sitting area. The elegant U-shaped house puts the bedrooms on one side and the great room on the other. Light floods into the house from all sides and the courtyard glows at the center.
