Note: according to International Code Council R304 “Habitable rooms shall not be less than 7 feet in any horizontal dimension.” This is very small for a room — or large for a cage…After having participated in the design of many idea houses for Sunset magazine I think a 10-by-12-foot bedroom is too small. But you may disagree.
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.
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.
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.
