This modern vacation home was designed for a smaller second home purpose, making the most of a small house footprint. House character is expressed in continuing connection of interior and exterior spaces. Spacious kitchen and great room were designed as one continuing space in an open floor plan. Main living area has a higher ceiling which increases the volume of the space. Window positioning allows to capture views in a different direction bringing continuing sun light in the house. The master bedroom is located separately from the living area allowing privacy and comfort. The master suite is also opens to the porch giving opportunities for outside activities. Second bedroom could be used as Dan, Hobby Room, etc. allowing guests to stay overnight. One of the main tasks of this tiny house was to have as much storage as possible which brings the ideas of pushed in closet and the living room shelf-wall. House layout has a great flexibility options and room areas could be extended to have more space if necessary. Variation of exterior cladding gives you a choice of house’s exterior appearance according to your own taste. Few exterior options are showcased using Natural Wood, Vinyl and Brick Veneer Siding. Interior design in this case show what possibilities home has from inside. This is only suggestion of how house could look from inside and we believe that everyone will design their own interior space according to their specific living taste.
Size, width and furniture placement are not the only variables impacting a room’s success. Volume can be just as important. Until recently, most homes were built with 8’ tall ceilings but taller ceilings are growing in popularity. By combining “open plans” where rooms flow seamlessly from one to the next with higher ceilings, smaller plans can be made to feel surprisingly comfortable. Conversely, a large room with a low ceiling will feel cramped despite the ample square footage. Another strategy used to make smaller rooms feel bigger is to include more and larger windows. Consider the placement of windows for view, balanced light, and heat and make sure you understand the size and type of windows proposed.
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.
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.
