This weeks house plan: Smart and efficient
Making excellent use of square footage, this plan is a good choice for a couple, small family or individual.
The home offers 1,273 square feet of well-designed living space on one level.
A full basement can be finished to double the space.
The covered porch provides shelter for the entryway and enough space to sit on a fine day. Inside, the foyer offers a direct sightline through the living room to the backyard, a good way to make any space seem bigger.
Eat quick meals at the kitchen’s bar, which opens to the living room, and enjoy the dining room, with a tray ceiling, for more leisurely meals. The modified, U-shaped kitchen has a broom closet and pantry, and looks out to the covered, rear patio.
The spacious living room features a sloped ceiling, central fireplace and cheerful windows.
To the right, the master suite has a sloped ceiling, and a high shelf for plants or other items.
The media room easily converts to form a second bedroom with a full bath nearby.
