A large great room with long hearth and bookcase wall is open to the kitchen. The private master suite is on the left with the nearby study (or nursery), while to the right are two more bedrooms with a shared bath. This more public end of the home also features a large craft area near the laundry, kitchen and large pantry. A large bay window houses the family breakfast table while a larger dining area is in the front of the home near the foyer. This space can be used as a study also.
Second Floor Loft
The two-vehicle garage with garage doors on the north has a storage area on the south large enough for yard equipment, recycling, and storing the garbage cans out of site. Being so close to the south patio, it will be a convenient location to store the barbeque grill too. Add south windows and the space becomes a winter greenhouse.
The gable roof design allows for more solar panels and a simpler roof line. The entire house has 9’ ceilings along with 6” thick exterior walls adaptable to various types of insulation both inside the wall and out. The concrete slab adds plenty of economical thermal mass for the home. The south floors can be covered in tile, stone, brick pavers, or stained with some of the elegant methods now available which can make the floors resemble marble and be very easy to clean.
Since these may affect energy performance and structural integrity, they should only be undertaken with professional assistance.
- Remove the breezeway and loft for cost savings
- Add a partial basement or root cellar under the breezeway
- Move the garage doors to the side if land
