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.
When we plan to build a new home, the floor plan is a treasure map, written in a symbolic language and promising the fulfillment of a dream. When we “read” a floor plan we imagine the simple lines and arc’s stretching into walls, doors and windows, we imagine ourselves in a “home,” and we wonder how the spaces will feel both empty and filled with life. But the language of floor plans can be subtle. Experienced designers, builders, and home enthusiasts are regularly surprised by how different a finished home feels from what they imagined.
The dining room is becoming a dinosaur, but if it's still important for holiday gatherings, why not treat it as an alcove off the main living space, where it can add spaciousness even when not in use.
From the front door go to the kitchen, living room or great room and then to the bedrooms. Imagine opening all the doors on the plan. Is there a graceful easy, and efficient flow between rooms and spaces? Below is a good example -- the circulation has no dead-end spaces. Furniture on the plan helps give scale to each space. Amenities are important but if the traffic flow is awkward the house will not live comfortably. Think about how the kitchen connects to the dining room or family room, where most people live.
