This week’s house plan

The Great Room features a cozy fireplace, while the kitchen and nook form an open eating area with two points of access to the porch.

This country-style cottage would make a fine vacation retreat or everyday home.

At 1,072 square feet on two levels, it fits just about anywhere.

Balusters and columns deck out the wraparound porch, which makes a fine vantage point for enjoying a beautiful day.

The entry, flanked by sidelights and windows, offers a lovely welcome. Step inside for views straight back to the rear porch.

With a cozy fireplace, the great room is a comfortable spot in which to relax. The kitchen and nook form an open eating area with two points of access to the

porch. Fling open these doors on a warm day to let in breezes.

A window above the sink lets you keep an eye on kids playing outside. A powder bath on this level is a convenient touch for guests.

Upstairs, each bedroom has a sloped ceiling and private full bath with a shelf adding convenience to the tub. Linen storage in the hall puts extra sheets within reach.
