A perfect getaway home or permanent residence for a small family, young professionals or retirees can be found in this narrow lot house plan. The rustic exterior is composed of cedar shakes, board and batten and an overhead gabled roof. The interior of the home features approximately 859 square feet of space which includes two bedrooms and one bath. Ideal for a narrow and/or small property lot, the home’s width and depth dimensions are 36’ and 39’ respectively. Nine foot ceiling heights add to the spacious quality of the home and the choice of a slab or crawl space foundation is a nice option. This home while small, packs a big punch with its open floor plan and double outdoor spaces. The front porch measures 15’ x 8’; plenty of space to greet family and friends while also relaxing; additionally, the front porch is screened but could easily be converted to an open covered porch. There is a large side grilling porch as well with convenient slider access into the kitchen. Imagine coming home from a day of hiking, fishing or other outdoor adventures and having plenty of room for friends to gather, host a cookout and enjoy the remainder of the day. With the convenient access into the kitchen, grilling the day’s catch will be enjoyable and effortless, not to mention, easily contained and creating little or no mess to clean up.
Entrance into the home is off the front screened porch and leads to the open floor plan. There is a large great room with warming fireplace, a great space for putting your feet up and relaxing at the end of the day. The kitchen, lacking nothing found in much larger, more expensive homes, is situated at the rear of the home featuring a wraparound kitchen island where plenty of seating is available for family and friends. There are double window views over the sink, an impressive amount of counter and cabinet space and an adjacent food storage pantry as well as the sliders onto the outdoor grilling porch. A conveniently located washer and dryer nook adds to the efficiency of the home’s interior. Two equivalent sized bedrooms are found on the opposite side of the home; each with window views and generous closet space. There is a shared hall bath containing vanity space, a toilet area, an enclosed linen closet and oversized shower. This house design showcases a smaller footprint; however, the amenities and conveniences are in line with larger, more elaborate homes making this an ideal choice for a small family home or a vacation home for weekend getaways.
