This one-story, two bedroom home was originally designed for a walkout lot, so it included a plan for a finishes basement that has 2 additional bedrooms, a full bath and a large family room. The vaulted ceilings throughout the main body of the house make it feel larger than its compact footprint. Even though small, the home still features a generous mud room off the kitchen and a main level laundry which can also be built as an office/crib room off of the master bedroom when the laundry is located in the mud room. A row of transom lights at the high point of the roof bring in daylight that filters through to the bedroom via a translucent plastic transom at the tall side of the bedroom walls.
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.
Stairs are drawn as a series of rectangles usually with a direction arrow indicating whether the stairs travel up to the next higher floor or down. Where the stair rises 3 ft above the floor it is cut with a diagonal line. Stairs above the “cut line” are shown with dashed lines.
Is it wide enough to really use? You need at least a six foot depth for sitting and 8 feet is preferable. For outdoor dining you need even more. Rustic farmhouse plan, includes a useful front veranda and a “Grilling Porch” at the rear off the kitchen. A well designed porch helps a house expand in good weather.
