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.
Many of us dream of building a new home or changing an existing house to make it truly “ours.” With a bit of practice the secret language of architectural plans will become clear and the surprises that sometimes come from misunderstanding plans will be replaced by the joy of seeing a personal, imagined experience become real. When reviewing prospective contractors' reference projects, ask if you can review the plans and see how the space compares. Carry a tape measure and note the dimensions of rooms that “work” and those that feel wrong. Pay attention to the placement of windows for light and views. It is fun and a with a little practice you will be able to “read” a floor plan like a pro.
Modern farmhouse design is a combination of traditional American farmhouse design and minimalistic contemporary style architecture. This house design reflects the needs of contemporary living by giving diverse inside spaces. Ground floor plan is divided in few different zones. Left wing accommodates main living area of open plan kitchen, living room and double story dining area. On the right wing, in the private zone there is master bedroom with large bathroom and open closet. It is situated parallel to the living room to catch the best views of open lot. Between two house wings on the ground floor there is a room suitable for home office or den. All main ground floor spaces are connected to the open outside porch to influence broader outside activities. On the second floor there are two large bedrooms and a bathroom. Open studio space could be used as a home library/hobby room or by adding partition walls there could be fourth bedroom of the house. Second floor also has a balcony which allows to enjoy open lot views from above.
Imagine how the plan will feel and work when you are doing the things that define your life. When planning your dream home, there is a tendency to value the unusual occurrences (greeting important guests at the entry, hosting a wedding dinner…) and less about regular daily use (taking off muddy boots, paying the bills). A truly successful home feels great every day. Think clearly about what your current (and past) house did well, not just where it falls short. A new house can add what is missing while providing many or all of the experiences that you appreciate in your current house.
